Noble Academy commemorated National African American History Month with a celebration on February 21, 2013. Noble Academy teachers, staff, and parents were proud of their students, and excited to see such hard work blossom on stage. The classes put such great effort into their performances, and they kept parents and guests entertained for almost two hours!
Students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade performed poetry by Tupac Shakur and Langston Hughes, donned costumes for skits about Madame C.J. Walker, danced to Michael Jackson’s hit song Beat It and TLC’s Waterfalls,reenacted an African folktale, and sang songs about Martin Luther King. The choir made a special tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary; their song was moving and beautiful, and brought tears to a few eyes in the audience.
Noble Academy was pleased to celebrate such a rich heritage and culture. The performances were heartfelt and thoughtful, as well as humorous and delightful. All who attended enjoyed the wide range of routines, and the students seemed pleased to be stars for an evening. We hope that next year celebration is just as entertaining!
