On November 14, 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges became one of the youngest Americans working for civil rights when she desegregated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans. As Ruby went to school all year, she was protected by U.S. Marshalls, and her mother, Lucille Bridges. Ruby’s bravery inspired famous paintings, books, and films. "Through My Eyes" is a powerful book written by Ruby about her own experiences that some classes may be reading and discussing this month. Learn more about Ruby here.
At Beaver Brook Elementary School we are fortunate to have a diverse student population that enriches the learning experiences of each member of our community. During Black History Month and year-round, each classroom learns about and celebrates the rich culture, traditions, and contributions of African-Americans from Ruby Bridges to Maya Angelou that are integral parts of American history.
Recently, our trusty groundhog said that we will have an early spring. Although we find the groundhog to be adorable and tend to listen to him, please help to make sure your child continues to come to school with the appropriate apparel for outdoor recess.
This past weekend our PTO held its Someone Special Dance and a great time was had by all who attended – thank you to all of the volunteers and families who donated snacks and beverages!
Finally, please be reminded that all Abington schools will be closed for Winter Break Monday, February 17 to Friday, February 21, 2020. We hope you take some time to relax, have fun, and read together with your child(ren).
