Black History Month performance at Pearson!

On Friday, February 23rd, Jamaal the Poet visited our school  and shared memorable stories with our staff and students using  rhythmic poetry and touching messages. His show was engaging and taught adolescents to strive for success and continue using language to reach others. His anecdotes about being an ESL student, having family problems and appreciating his parents helped our students understand life in a new perspective!

He took the time to chat with students and take selfies after the show which is a real gift to our students. We hope to invite him again!
