Black History Month WeLead Day
Every year, Albany Leadership celebrates Black History Month with the intention of highlighting monumental figures across history. We value and honor the phrase ‘To understand our future, we must know the past’ and over the past few weeks, teachers, administrative staff, and students have worked together to create a series of activities highlighting monumental figures who help us to continue to honor this phrase.
On Friday, February 18th, ALCS had a WeLead day where students and staff had a day of activities celebrating Black History. Students decorated their classroom doors, participated in a virtual Winter Assembly, had a discussion about Afro-Latinas with Ms. Carmen, and ended with a My Sister’s Keeper activity down in the gym with some of our staff joining in! They also attended a virtual session by SEFCU where students learned about budgeting through a simulated experience. It was a great day with our 6th graders and high school students.
Every year, Albany Leadership staff and students gather together in solidarity, celebrate our cultural and ethnic heritages and take a collective stand to work together in doing our part to make the world a safer, stronger, and more equitable place for us all. This charge does not end on Feb 28, as educators we will continue to take on this charge and continue to create safe and equitable spaces for our students to learn and grow on their journey to academic success.
