Black History Month

Horn Elementary first graders sang and danced to celebrate Black History Month.

Horn Elementary first graders sang and danced to celebrate Black History Month. Ms. Evelyn Gates, who has been teaching at Horn for 30 years, discussed the theme for the performance and completed research with the class. Artists chosen were centered around the personality of the students who participated. They included Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston and Prince. During the performance, each musician gave personal history/bio points from memory and then sang a snippet of a famous song. African dancers came on after the musicians. Narrators welcomed the parents and described the performance. Pictured are (top row, from left) Vaughn Titterington, Katherine Nugent, Ansley Browning, Reese Morgenroth, Case Lindsay, Petronella Streeter, Harper Johnson-Azubuko, Jai Sharma, B.J. Sarmiento, Chloe Yen, Sienna Brooks, Emily Polec, (bottom row, from left) Max Leung, Marisa Chookiarti, Keaton Miller, Madison Chapa, Maximilian Camp and Timothy Hsu.
