Black History Month

Dear FPS Families,

Today marks the beginning of Black History Month. FPS students, educators and community members honor and celebrate the achievements of generations of Black Americans not only this month, but throughout the year. It is important for our students and educators to continue to have meaningful conversations in the classroom surrounding race, while learning about the roles and accomplishments of Black Americans in our Nation’s history. 

FPS students across the district highlight Black History Month by discussing and learning about subjects such as landmark legal decisions, school integration and civil rights, historical figures, leaders, inventors and educators. 

Please join me in honoring the generations of Black Americans who have positively influenced our community and country.
