Dear Sierra Families,
First, we would like to wish you all a HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
“The fact of the matter is — Black history is American history. The African American impact on history is far-reaching and is deeply etched in the social fabric of America. We cannot talk about American history without talking about African American history. These two stories are intrinsically intertwined (Huffington Post, 2015)”.
The Sierra Black Culture Club will lead celebrations throughout the month not only to recognize the impact of Black Americans on American culture but also that of many other people from the African Diaspora.
Alongside our celebrations this month, our parent leadership group, VOICES, will be hosting their first educational series event on the topic of substance abuse. This is a FREE event for our families! Our student ambassadors will be there to help celebrate how much we LOVE our parents during this evening as well. We hope to see you there! If you would like more information about this event, please reach out to Muna Ali at email@example.com.
