Once again we are proud to be celebrating Black History Month at Eastglen! Last year we engaged our students in learning about Canada's past and explored the important contributions of Black Canadians nationwide.
This year we have organized our celebration around exploring Alberta's past, its present and our hope for our future. As part of our celebration, each day we will be recognizing two Canadians who have impacted our past. We will be sharing this on our social media, SchoolZone, school announcements, and with various classroom activities. Our Art students also worked on a portrait series that celebrates Black Canadians throughout history. You can find these around the school painted on different windows with information cards below.
Our students will also be engaging with local Black authors, writers and public officials including Assistant Superintendent Kent Pharis, Trustee Trisha Estabrooks, and MLA David Shepherd. We also have three groups of students who completed projects in a national competition related to envisioning their communities through the lens of anti-racism.
We are very proud to be celebrating Black History Month!

Drawing 15 students explored the postmodern principles of juxtaposition and dislocation to create a cabinet of curiosities. Art 20/30s explored the question "what is worth preserving?" and were encouraged to bring in an object that held importance for us to preserve and create art from.
