In honor of Black History Month, Bailey Intermediate 5th graders in Toni Preston’s class spent a large part of February researching famous people who have made an impact on U. S. History. The students gathered information from books and the internet then narrowed their research down to one person to present to the class. Due to classes being cancelled because of winter weather, the creative biographical presentations went well into the first part of March and were shared through stories, poems, artwork and mock interviews. Among those spotlighted were Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jackie Robinson.
