Sherwod Cluster Africian American Celebration
The NAACP Parents' Council of Sherwood, Greenwood and Brooke Grove Elementary Schools presented its' annual African-American Read-In. The event was hosted by Sherwood Elementary in the Media Center on Thursday, February 27th where we were honored with 10 amazing student readers. The Principal from Sherwood, Mrs. Dina Brewer and Assistant Principal, Mr. Michael Burd, as well as the Principal of Brooke Grove, Mrs. Gail West, were all in attendance, which provided the much needed school level support on which our kid's thrive. In addition to the poetry that the children selected to read, we had several Black History themed activities. Certificats of Participation were prepared for each reader by MCPS Speech Pathologist, Mrs. Doris Wray. To honor Black History month throughout the entire month of February, we developed a 28-day Africian-American interesting facts take-a-way! These facts were read during the morning announcements each day and the Principals at Sherwood and Brooke Grove ES selected students to read the interesting facts to the entire student body during the morning announcements. A special thanks to the staff at Sherwood, Brooke Grove, and Greenwood elementary schools in supporting the NAACP'S efforts to share and promote Africian-American contributions and helping our minority students take pride in their heritage and their future!
