Black History Month Observances

Dear Highland Terrace Families,

Black History Observance:  Throughout February, we are going to engage in school-wide learning about Black history.  Our plans for school-wide learning and Shoreline evening opportunities are outlined in the document at this link.

This month is a way for our community to reaffirm the value we have for our students of color and other marginalized groups.  Our staff recognizes that while February is a time when we are highlighting Black history,  we cannot separate Black history from American history as a whole. We know it is important to incorporate Black history across curriculum throughout the year and to connect issues in the past to current issues.  

Please reach out if you have any questions.  I value and appreciate hearing from you.  

Sincerely, 

Lara Drew 

Principal  | Highland Terrace
