A Message from Our Principal


Parents and Students,

Join me in celebrating February as Black History Month. 

In the twentieth century, Negro History Week began. The hope was that an adequate reflection of black Americans would surface. This was a longing of historian Carter Woodson. 

In 1976, President Gerald Ford began our new tradition of Black History Month in February.  

The first black woman to go to nursing school is Mary Mahoney. Mary was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1845. She is one of the many brave figures we remember during this month. She went on to complete her training at New England Hospital for Women and Children in 1879.

Let's all do Woodson, Ford, and Mahoney proud by remembering this great reflection.

Sincerely,

Bryan D'Alessio
