Saint Matthias Students Participate in African American Read-In

On Friday, February 13, 2015, students at Saint Matthias met as their “families” to celebrate the works of African American authors and illustrators as a part of the African American Read-In.  Saint Matthias participates in the event annually.  This is the first time the focus has been on two specific authors: Jerry Pinkney and Nina Crews.

This learning and awareness activity is hosted nationally by the Black Caucus of NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) and NCTE.

This is just one of the many adventures in learning that students participate in during Black history month.  Serving students from more than a dozen countries, lessons in cultural diversity happen naturally throughout the year.
