Toomer Elementary establishes diplomatic relations with Ambassador Young

Toomer Elementary School welcomes APS and the entire school community to participate in a “Talk with a Historical Icon Session” with former Atlanta Mayor and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young on Friday (Feb. 19), from 1 p.m t0 2 p.m. in the school auditorium. Toomer Principal Nicole Evans Jones and Toomer’s parent liaison, Joi Jackson, arranged the event and in recognition of Black History Month. It’s an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the historical time frame of the Civil Rights Movement, and to have a personal encounter with a historical icon such as Young.

The event will provide Toomer’s third-, fourth- and fifth-graders, parents and community members with an opportunity to listen to Andrew Young speak. Following the speech, the audience will participate in a question-and-answer session. Toomer’s third-, fourth- and fifth-graders have learned about Young by reading biographical information, completing research and learning about his role in the movement, and the entire school community is looking forward to the event.
