Shorewood School District Celebrates Black History Month

To highlight Black History Month, the Shorewood School District will hold multiple events and activities throughout the month of February.
Shorewood High School students plan to hold a Black History Month celebration, which will take place on Thursday, February 13, and will include two different performances.
The theme for this year’s celebration—selected by the students—is “Pioneers in Black Art.” The students will inform and expose the audience to some works from black artists who have made an impact on American society through music, dance, and spoken word. The audience will hear both well-known pieces and original student pieces throughout the evening.
All Shorewood High School and Shorewood Intermediate School students will attend the school performance during the morning of February 13, and then a production for the public, with free admission, will take place at 7 p.m. the evening of February 13.
In addition to the performances at the High School, the elementary schools will also host activities.
Both elementary schools plan to have daily announcements during which students will share information on famous and inspiring African Americans. Additionally, the Youth Rising Up student group will also be coming from Shorewood High School to read to and work with students at both elementary schools.

At Shorewood Intermediate School, the Student Council is organizing grade-level assemblies to take place on Tuesday, February 25, during Guided Studies. Additionally, the Student Advisory Board and the SIS Ally Club are teaming up to plan some activities for student and staff participation.
More details on the above activities will be forthcoming.
