Lenora B. Smith Elementary celebrates African American History Month by honoring the courage and bravery of Ruby Bridges. Our fabulous fifth grade readers visited the classrooms of the younger students to read about this little girl's courage as she faced extreme racism. Videos and other interactive materials were used to give students the necessary background knowledge. It was exciting to hear our kindergarten students share this story complete with the essential vocabulary - segregation, integration, marshals, racism, courage, bravery. At the conclusion of presentations, students created a chain link complete with summaries of the story. We were honored to have two six year old students, Janiyah Hardy and Guernya Senatus, dress and pose as Ruby Bridges. The visual allowed our students to really understand the magnitude of Ruby's courage. One small person can make a BIG difference. We thank our media specialist, Ms. Haber, for organizing such a fantastic day!
