FOR PARENTS: PRESIDENT'S DAY

On Monday, February 20th, we celebrate President’s Day to acknowledge the past and current leaders of our government. As school is closed for the holiday, it’s a good idea to take the time to recognize the day at home. Try writing an “I Will Make a Difference” speechand discuss leadership as a family. Or read these books celebrating Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president.


FOR EDUCATORS: CELEBRATING HISTORICAL BLACK WOMEN

This week, we honor Black History Month by celebrating the numerous contributions African American women have made to our society. From creating some of the most amazing written works in history, like Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston, and Maya Angelou, to fighting for freedom like Harriet Tubman, black women have shaped our world today. And some have even been beyond Earth, like Mae Jemison!
