Media & Society Class Celebrates Black History Month

One of the Media & Society classes is using the month of February to do their part to celebrate Black History Month. They have been learning about African American music, poetry, literature, and the Civil Rights Movement. Below are the four girls, Kiersten, Caleigh, Ashley, and Lexie, that make up this class giving their presentations on African American music. They chose a genre they wanted to research, and gave the history of the music genre, and how it was influenced by African Americans. They also chose one performer of their specific type of music who played a large role in making that genre what it is today. Kiersten gave her presentation on Reggae music, featuring Bob Marley. Caleigh gave her presentation on Gospel music featuring Whitney Houston. Ashley gave her presentation on Rock & Roll music, featuring Little Richard. Lexie gave her presentation on Rap/Hip Hop featuring Snoop Dogg.

Kindergarten Heart Hero


For Valentine’s Day, the Kindergarten Class honored Eli Gillaspie as their “Heart Hero”. Eli was born with a congenital heart defect known as Tetraolgy of Fallot. He underwent open heart surgery at 8 months old. Eli will need one more surgery to put in a fake valve. His parents say, ” Eli is healthy, happy and loves life. He is our super heart warrior and blesses us every day!” You bless the Kindergarten Class and Boyd County Elementary School too! Happy Heart Hero to Eli!!
