Bret Harte Elementary School students, families and staff celebrated Black History Month on February 28. Coordinated by school librarian Erma Davis, students performed songs, dances and speeches featuring traditional African culture and highlighting many by famous and lesser-known African American heroes.

Davis and her student volunteers worked tirelessly on the program, meeting each week since the beginning of October. The result was a beautiful acknowledgment and appreciation of black history.
