The Catalyst school communities are celebrating Black History Month throughout February 2019! On Friday February 22nd, Catalyst Circle Rock held their annual Black History Bowl- pictured below are several winners!
Catalyst Maria HS engaged a joyful Black History Month throughout February! Grade level teams incorporated intentional cross-curricular activities for scholars to learn about black history through multiple lenses, and College Seminars each adopted an African country to research and celebrate through a heritage project. Black History Month culminated in an amazing assembly on February 27th featuring both scholar and teacher singers, dancers, poets, and presenters to exemplify the theme of “Black Girl Magic and Black Boy Joy” (pictured below). Thank you to all of the CMHS staff made this possible!
