2024 Mrs. Crystal's 1st and 2nd Grade (11)

Dear Families,

As we enter a new month of inspired learning, we want to take a moment to reflect on the enriching and educational activities that took place at SCVi across all grade levels throughout Black History Month. February was a month filled with learning, celebration, and reflection on the contributions and achievements of Black Americans throughout history.

  • In our kindergarten classes, our youngest learners engaged in short biographies and activities centered around influential figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Ruby Bridges, and Rosa Parks. These activities were designed to introduce learners to the impactful stories of these individuals and spark conversations about equality, justice, and courage.
  • Our first and second graders delved deeper into Black history through a variety of activities. From empathy circle conversations to studying key moments in history, our learners explored the lives and legacies of numerous contributors to Black history.
  • In third and fourth grade, learners engaged in daily discussions and explorations of the accomplishments of Black Americans. Through videos, books, and group activities, learners studied prominent figures and their contributions to society. Additionally, fourth graders embarked on a research and writing project focusing on a person of their choice who made a significant impact on history.
  • Fifth graders participated in interactive readings, artistic endeavors such as drawing Rosa Parks, and exploring civil rights history through a slideshow focusing on Los Angeles. They also explored a wide range of Black stories and narratives and are completing a research assignment on influential Black leaders.
  • Our middle schoolers have been actively involved in projects such as creating posters focused on equality, a “Becoming an Ally” project, and in-depth research and presentations on various aspects of Black American heritage. From famous authors and artists to lesser-known figures, our learners have been expanding their knowledge and understanding of Black history, culture, and current events.
  • At the high school level, learners researched Emmett Till, discussing how his death galvanized certain civil rights activists in the ’50s and ’60s. Additionally, learners are immersed in a data science project focusing on diversity and representation in magazines.

We are incredibly proud of the dedication and enthusiasm our learners have shown throughout Black History Month. Their engagement in these activities not only deepens their understanding of history but also fosters empathy, critical thinking, and a commitment to equity.

We invite you to stop by and witness some of the remarkable work our learners have produced as part of these initiatives. Thank you for your continued support and partnership in providing our learners with meaningful learning experiences.
