Fun @ Ray This Month

  February 1st marks the beginning of African American History Month and the beginning of lots of fun activities.   To begin, our morning radio show program will feature trivia questions for kindergarten through third grade and questions for fourth through sixth grade.  I will read the question and classrooms race to buzz the office with the correct answer.  Our students love it.

Secondly, this Friday night, we will host Black Literature Night from 6 to 8pm.  We will serve pizza and beverages.  Students and adults will share their favorite African American or African children’s book or poems.  Students will read poetry, create their own cartoons that will be entered into the Gallery Walk at the end of the month.  There will be children’s storytelling,  and 57th street books will be there with books for purchase.

Jazz, blues and R& B will be played in the cafeteria during each lunch period and each class will begin month long projects with projects on display for the our finale, the Gallery Walk on February 26.   This event will be held twice on that day.  It begins at 8am with a breakfast and Ray Cafe (fearturing Ray’s Brand of Coffee)followed by walks through the school to see student projects.  The evening walk is from 6pm to 8pm and includes a potluck dinner of soul food.  Each classroom will have a display.  Everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday, February  2, we will have a craft fair, the benefits of which will go to support our technology program.  Please come and show your support of those entrepreneurs who are helping support our students’ achievement.  Booths will be open during poll times, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.  We will have our Ray Cafe open for coffee and…and in addition will sell chocolate bars from World’s Finest.
