Students Celebrate First Black History Month Festival
The Upper School students celebrated Viewpoint’s firstBlackHistoryMonth Festival with a rousing performance by the School’s new Middle and Upper School Step Team. The students, led by Step Coach and College Counselor Jamon Pulliam, have been practicing for months and the results were amazing!
The Upper School students also had a great time playing a spirited round of “BlackJeopardy,” hosted by game show host and comedian Wayne Brady. They then participated in Double Dutch, which they learned was REALLY challenging, enjoyed three-on-three basketball, had the chance to learn a step routine (also challenging), watched short films, and snacked on churros and popcorn.
The Middle School students had a chance to see the Step Team in action at their ownBlackHistoryMonth Assembly on February 11, and we look forward to them performing again for the students in the Primary and Lower Schools.
Many thanks to Jamon Pulliam, Donna Hicks, LeRhonda Greats, theBlackStudent Union, and many others for organizing this very special week ofBlackHistoryMonth activities for our community!
