MULLENS– 4th grade students at Mullens Elementary School celebrate Black History Month a little later this year.
The 4th grade students had the opportunity to research different candidates and then choose the one they wanted to do a project on. The students then created presentation boards and dressed up as different famous African Americans. Other classes, parents and teachers walked around the gymnasium and asked the different students about their project and who they were.
