SJN Celebrates Black History Month

Several times each year, the faculty and families of St. John Nottingham Lutheran School gather together to share a meal, fellowship, and see the work the SJN students are doing. This February, we celebrated Black History Month with a wonderful soul food meal provided by Mr. Paul Walton, a respected member of the St. John Nottingham School Commission. The students displayed research and art projects in which they explored the many, many contributions African-Americans have made (and continue to make) to our great society, told parents and visitors about the accomplishments of a wide variety of black inventors, entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, politicians, and authors, and just had a lot of fun.

We call these meetings FACT Nights, which stands for "Families All Come Together," and that's exactly what happens. The families that make up SJN all come together to join as one in celebration and community. Prospective and curious families considering SJN as a school are, of course, always welcome at these events. If you are interested in attending, simply contact the SJN office to find out when the next one is happening!
