Since 1976, the month of February has marked the annual observance of Black History. Observed in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States, the Black History Month
is a tribute to African-American men and women who have made significant contributions to America and the rest of the world. To honor the month, each day DBHS will include a “Did you know?” fact on the afternoon announcements. These facts teach students about the African Americans who have been given less than deserved recognition. There will also be a Showcase of Black History on Friday, February 23rd
, with Ms. Smith. The show will be held in the auditorium, throughout the day with select classes. The showcase will give students the opportunity to learn about the unrecognized and unacknowledged heroes of black history. The program will celebrate the past, present, and the future African Americans. Teachers are invited to celebrate with their students in the auditorium on Friday, February 23rd
, during sixth and eighth period. Students who are interested or would like to participate in the Black History Showcase can contact Ms. Smith.
Support for Marjory Stoneman Douglas
Broward County Public Schools district is dealing with the unimaginable tragedy and there are no words to express the sorrow that this community is feeling. Donations are being raised to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific shooting by Broward Education Foundation
– only 501(c)3 direct support organization solely dedicated to raising funds for Broward County Public Schools. There are no platform fess for using GoFundMe
, so 100% of the funds collected after payment processing charges will go directly to the victims and families. In addition, there will be a school-organized fundraiser on Friday, February 23rd
where Deerfield Beach High School’s students can purchase fundraiser wristbands for $2.00 to participate in the walk, and all proceeds will go towards supporting victims. The Westglades Middle School PTA is also showing its support for the families of the victims at MSD by raising funds through the sale of “MSD Strong” shirts
. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go to the Broward Education Foundation to benefit the victims’ families and memorial funds.
