 Guilford High School Celebrates Black History Month

2/19/2019 12:00 AM

Guilford High School is hosting a few events for Black History Month. One way that students are participating in Black History Month is through an African-American Read-In. This event, an initiative of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and sponsored by the Guilford Freshman Academy, will take place in the school library from 3:45 – 4:50 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20.

Students, staff and families are invited to settle in and read books by African-American authors and about notable African-American people and topics. Refreshments will be served compliments of the 21st Century grant. This read-in, the second time Guilford has partnered with NCTE, provides students a quiet haven to enjoy their favorite books and discover new favorites. During breaks from reading, participants may enjoy listening to jazz and viewing the poetry of Tupac Shakur.

Any and all are welcome! Please enter Guilford by the main door on Spring Creek Road and proceed straight back to the library. Activity buses are available for students at the conclusion of the event.

For additional information, please contact Mickey Swart, mickey.swart@r​ps205.com.
