February is the month of love and the month to celebrate Black History. One thing we love at Justice is the rich history in our name. In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first African-American Justice on the Supreme Court. Throughout his tenure on the Supreme Court, Justice Marshall was known for his unwavering commitment to civil rights and his advocacy for the rights of the disadvantaged. He wrote numerous influential opinions, particularly in cases related to racial and social justice. Justice Marshall left a lasting legacy as a trailblazer in the legal profession and a champion for equality under the law, and we are proud to have him as our namesake.
On February 22, we will host a Title I literacy night, “Snow Better Time to Read.” We hope you join us for some winter reading activities, games, and family support for literacy at home.
We will have Literacy Week Dress Up Days to help us celebrate our focus on reading:
- Tuesday 2/20: Toboggan Tuesday–Wear Winter Hats
- Wednesday 2/21: Winter Weather Wednesday–Wear White
- Thursday 2/22: Thermal Thursday–Wear thermal shirts, flannels, vests
- Friday 2/23: Fuzzy Sock Friday–Wear Fuzzy or Funky Socks
I thank you for your continued support and partnership in the education of all of our students. This is our time to SOAR to new heights, and we continue to dedicate our time and energy to this task. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
