Black History Month Highlight

Our classrooms are honoring Black History Month by highlighting black authors, poets, athletes, and business owners. It is important to us that SLC is a community which embraces diversity and individuality, not only in February, but every day. This blog called Here Wee Read (shared with the staff by Chrissy C.) has a wonderful book list of black authors geared toward young children. Take a look!
