CCMS' annual Black History Month Program was on Wednesday, February 14th at 10:00AM in the school gym. Families were invited to join scholars to come together to celebrate the rich history of trailblazers and hope makers who have emulated excellence.
7th Grade Scholars represented influential leaders and stars such as Maya Angelou, Oprah, Rosa Parks, President Barack Obama, Jennifer Hudson, Michael Jordon, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and our own Music Banks and Principal Gordon.
Performing Arts scholars performed a skit and musical selections, and Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech was recited by the 6th and 7th Grade Scholars.
Music Banks and Principal Gordon recognized CEO/Founder Rev. Dr. Les Mullings for his vision and the opportunity that has been given to the scholars and their families through Challenge Charter Schools.
Principal Gordon thanked families for coming out to support the school and admonished the scholars with more words of Dr. King quoting, "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."
