Across our schools, every month is black history month and we honor black excellence every day. And, throughout the month of February, we are excited to have the opportunity to celebrate and honor all the changemakers and trailblazers who’ve come before us. We salute legends who recently passed like Hank Aaron, Cicely Tyson, and John Lewis –powerful influencers who paved the way for future actors, athletes, activists, and public servants. And we also honor the new generation of changemakers, like Madam Vice President Kamala Harris, who inspires children everywhere to strive for their dreams, and Amanda Gorman, who has captivated the nation with her elegant, poignant words. These figures continue to be beacons of hope in these trying times. They remind us that it is always worthwhile to look to the future and strive for more.
Thank you as always for your support and partnership. As a reminder, these emails will now be monthly, so expect to hear from us again in March.
