February may be over, but Pearl Zanker Elementary School (1585 Fallen Leaf Dr.), which this year hosted its first-ever Black History Month Ceremony, will be presenting a special event to close things out…
On March 7, 2019, the school’s PTA will be putting on an event titled Black History Month Closing Assembly. An emcee and a guest speaker will take the mic, and an array of dynamic dancers will take the stage.
The location will be the school’s multi-use building. The featured dancing will stem from African cultural origins, and also include a stepping performance by the Lambda Gamma Sorority. The guest speaker, Professor James Taylor, is with the University of San Francisco.
Two versions of the assembly will take place, each one 30 minutes long. They start at 10:40AM and 11:15AM. Visitors wishing to stop by and attend can check in at the school’s front office.
A press release issued by the school’s Black History Month committee read in part, “The Pearl Zanker PTA mission is to ‘Be an advocate for every child.’ This year PTA events are centered on celebrating what enhances the campus community, kindness, and making the world a better place.”
