Black History Month is a time for North Star Scholars to creatively share their understanding of the sacrifices, break-thoroughs and achievements of black Americans. Whether it is by decorating their classroom doors, writing poems of gratitude, or performing tributes to honor black American pioneers, North Star values the struggle and the progress. We know that the opportunity to affect change in this world, is not limited to a moment, or a single month, but instead it is a movement. Each day we come to school ready to learn, and give our best, is another day we work to continue the legacy of a rich heritage.
Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and excitement at North Star Academy. Scholars celebrate with “potluck” lunches complete with turkey, mac and cheese and all of the holiday favorites! We also reflect on the bonds of community, friendship and family. Like our scholars above, may you also celebrate the strength of friendship, and enjoy this time with those you hold dear. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
