Alden Terrace Honors Black History and Women’s History
To commemorate both Black History Month and Women’s History Month, Alden Terrace School celebrated inspiring figures in the virtual assembly “If These Walls Could Speak!” on March 5.
In-person and Virtual Academy scholars joined together in this virtual assembly to learn about notable Black people and women in history. Teachers and scholars researched and highlighted the great work and accomplishments of a variety of Black figures and women. They created wall decorations honoring these key figures and created short video clips that included facts and interesting information about each person being highlighted. Those featured included Maya Angelou, Simone Biles, Chadwick Boseman, Ruby Bridges, Kobe Bryant, Bessie Coleman, Alfred Cralle, Ella Fitzgerald, Amanda Gorman, Mae Jemison, former President Barack Obama, Naomi Osaka, Rosa Parks and Jackie Robinson.
Assistant Principal Shona Beldo organized the schoolwide project as a way for the students to celebrate the achievements of African American figures and women in a creative way.
