  • Mrs. Rossi's Class Celebrates Black History Month

    Thank you to Ms. Candis Lafountain for sharing these photos of Mrs. Rossi’s Grade 5 class who presented a skit for Black History Month on Monday, February 29. Rossi’s students dressed as historical figures who they have been learning about and spoke some of the original words of these heroes. The skit covered topics such as slavery, emancipation, segregation and the Civil Right Movement. Music to accompany the skits was performed by students who were led by Hillcrest Music Teacher Mrs. Lester.
