Good Morning! Today is Tuesday, February 4th and it is a B Day for everyone!! 

As we begin the month of February, we are excited to celebrate Black History Month with a variety of activities. We will have daily questions for prizes, fun facts, a door decorating contest, and much more!! Mrs. Heyen will share more information later this week.

Question of the Day: What was the symbol of Black power during the 1968 Olympics?

Did you Know: Did you know that Maggie Lena Walker was the first female bank president of any race to charter a bank in the US? She founded St. Luke Penny Savings Bank in Richmond, Virginia.

8th Boys Basketball: Calling all Leopards to come out and support our 8th grade boys basketball team as they take on Grant Middle School tonight @5:30pm. Let's root them to victory so we can have the opportunity to play for the championship game on Thursday! All games will be held at Glenwood Middle School.
