Cecil H. Parker School celebrates Women's History Month

Cecil H. Parker School celebrates Women's History Month

Students at Cecil H. Parker School congregated in the auditorium for their monthly assembly to learn about the importance of Women’s History Month on Friday, March 22, 2024. The presentation highlighted various influential women who have made a substantial impact on society.  

In preparation for the show, students researched women to showcase in the assembly including Coco Gauff, Frida Kahlo, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor and Jane Goodall. Scholars created poster boards about them with information about their accomplishments and legacy to hang around the auditorium. 

“We wanted to do Women’s History Month so the children could learn about trailblazing women that have changed history in different fields,” said Saroya Brown, third grade teacher at Parker. “We talked about math, science, entrepreneurship, so it gave them a chance to see that it’s not just history, it’s herstory. They researched first, and then we came up with parts for the play.” 

Third grade students began the program by marching down the aisles singing “This Girl is on Fire’” by Alicia Keys. Afterwards, they informed the audience about why Women’s History Month is celebrated and its importance. Finally, students went up to the podium one by one to share various inspirational stories of women's success.
