The month of February is Black History Month. The Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. As we go through the month of February we plan to highlight some of these achievements from the prominent figures that helped build our country.
Did you know that Jackie Robinson became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era? Robinson broke the baseball color line when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. Prior to this, he served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1944 as a second lieutenant. Later in 1962, Robinson was the first African American to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

February's Character Word: "Honesty"
Honesty is defined as a moral character that is a positive and virtuous attribute. An honest person has integrity, truthfulness, is loyal and fair, and strives to do the right thing. As we go through our day let's think of how we can use honesty to make our school and relationships better for everyone.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, "To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest."
At this time would everyone please stand for the pledge of allegiance followed by the Timberwolf Pledge.
And now for the Timber Wolf Pledge
I have the right to participate fully in my school, to be treated with respect and to feel welcomed. Any words or actions intended to harm a member of our school family is hurtful to us all and will not be tolerated. Today, I pledge to make this a better week for everyone.
Everyone have a "Meaningfully and Motivating" Monday!
