CCPS Celebrates Black History Month

Excitement was in the air as schools were actively engaged in celebrating Black History Month. Caroline County Public Schools has long recognized the legacy and achievements of African Americans that made immense contributions to Caroline, Virginia, and the country. Schools in Caroline County provided opportunities for students to learn about the rich cultural and historical heritage through literature, fine arts, lessons, activities, and programs. Bowling Green Elementary School’s fourth grade class created and displayed a Living History Wax Museum. Lewis and Clark Elementary students paired together to role-play and create a video to interview famous African Americans such as Joe Louis and Harriet Tubman. Madison Elementary School created a Black History Gallery and showcased student work in the hallways with poetry, posters, and narratives. Caroline Middle School students researched and honored famous African Americans with door decorations. Caroline High School students presented history information, performed songs and recited poetry during the Black History Extravaganza.
