L.P. Miles Elementary celebrated Black History Month with its annual program Friday. Parents and community members were delighted by the talent of the participating classes. After a rousing welcome by student hosts Deonte Bryant and Keari Bryant of Karen Pettigrew’s fourth-grade class, the talent began.
Performances were provided in by each grade level including pre-k and featured a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King by the school chorus.
The program was directed by music teacher Letricia Henson. Art teacher Dr. Russell Kennedy, stage manager/physical education teacher Rico Eberhart and media specialist Dr. Reginald Ponder were among the wealth of faculty talent that helped pull the program together.
The weeks prior to the program included thematic events with historically black college and university (HBCU) shirts, dressing up as a favorite African-American hero and black history trivia through out the month. Visit the APS Media Gallery for a full set of photos.
