Pride Period: Academic Assistance Available for Students

 

Tutoring – Are you having difficulty writing that paragraph for Language Arts? Still have questions about last night’s math homework? Do you need a hand getting organized for the day?

Pride Period is your answer to those questions and more.

Every Tuesday through Friday, from 7:40 to 8:00 AM there are teachers waiting to help you with Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or organization. In the mornings you can get a pass from teachers with Hall Duty to go back to the academic wings for help. You can also ask your teacher for a pass the day before you go to get help. For the afternoon, the process is the same … all you need is a pass to drop in and get assistance from a content teacher.

Pride Period, where teachers are here to help!

In 1986, figure skater Debi Thomas became the first African American to win the Women's Singles of the U.S. National Figure Skating Championship competition, was a pre-med student at Stanford University in 1986.

Also, Ruby Bridges- Civil Rights activist- Born on Sept. 8, 1954 in Tylertown, Mississippi,  Ruby Nell Bridges moved with her family to New Orleans in 1955 in search of better opportunities. What they found there was a changing world; desegregation went from a legal term to a reality for the 6-year-old who was among only six children in New Orleans to pass a screening test for admittance into the newly-desegregated public school system. Escorted by four federal marshals on her first day of first grade, Ruby Bridges made history when she walked through the crowd of militant segregationists and angry protesters and through the doors of William Frantz public school as the first and only black student. With only one teacher, Mrs. Henry, willing to teach a black student, and with no peers willing to learn alongside her, Ruby Bridges found herself in a class of one. Showing a steadfast and courageous spirit beyond her years, Ruby Nell never missed a day of school and showed the world she was a class apart.

 

Today is Friday, February 17th and it’s a B day.
