Black History Month

The FL Educational Department celebrated black history month with a festival. President Gerald R. Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” In honor of black history month our festival included speeches, poems, dancing, food sampling, trivia games, and a short play.

Special Olympics

Some of our Special Olympics Athletes enjoyed a fantastic bowling game. Our Athletes were joined by Athletes from our area to participate in the bowling meet.  A great time was had by all!  One of our parents was able to join us as well.
