Black History Assembly


Northside Elementary school celebrated black history month during February. Black History month was concluded with a school wide performance on Friday, February 28th. The first act was the Navigators on the Move, students carrying out their drumming beats. The second act, which was one of the most admired parts was when the kindergarteners sang “The Song of Peace” it was delightful. A few students from a fifth grade class read the poem “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou. The reading was meaningful and enjoyable. After the fourth performance was a third grade class reading about the “Black Sit-ins”.Then a second grade class told the audience about famous African American people. It was interesting because there many famous people that students were able to learn about. Soon after, the audience watched a video that a first grade class made about the African American people who changed our lives.  Before long, iNavigate performed by dancing to the song “I’ll be there”. The last performance was the second group of Navigators on the Move and they were stomping and clapping. Everybody in the assembly sang the Northside theme song which was fun. The performance was a wonderful way to celebrate the end of Black History month, it was enjoyed by all.
