Black History Month

Black History Month is celebrated in February, a celebration that was first proposed in the United States by different black educators in 1969. This celebration has spread to different countries, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, and many other countries.

Since its creation, special interest was placed on making known what African American culture has influenced in universal history. For this reason, the school also wanted to celebrate it by inviting the father of two students, where he told the story of Katherine Johnson, a scientist who contributed to NASA, thanks to her calculations, in the success of different space flights. The story named Counting on Katherine was told to the first, second, third and fourth grade students. Afterwards, they did an activity as a reflection on this story.
