Black History Month Door Decorations

As you may know, our students and staff have been working hard this month learning about Black History Month. Each classroom worked together to decorate their doors showcasing and celebrating influential black leaders, past, present, and future. Yesterday, some of our students presented the decorated doors to a panel of judges, including our Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Gejda. We are so proud of our students and wanted to share their hard work with you! We hope you enjoy these photos of our First Annual Lordship School Black History Month Door Decorating Contest!
