Lenora B. Smith Elementary celebrates its 2nd Annual African American Read-in Chain in sheer fashion. We were graced with guests from several different professional arenas including UTD President, Community Leaders, Sports Writer, College Professor, Music Producer, Early Learning Coalition Directors and so many more. We also had the privileged of hosting several retired teachers who'd served in the Allapattah community. This event coordinated by Mr. Harvey Stribling, our primary reading coach, was kicked off with our students who provided the welcome, sang the Negro National Anthem and a completed a dramatic presentation on Harriet Tubman. Students were in amazement during the presentations!!! Presenters read great books, sang spirituals and completed dramatic presentations. Many students learned to appreciate the power of jazz as one presenter shared his love of the art form. The day was concluded by a traditional African American meal and thank you gifts for the guests! We are looking forward to next year's event.
