Sheronda Rogers-Green and Daughters of Destiny were guests at East Side Elementary and presented a Black History program on February 23. Sheronda did a monologue titled “Phenomenal Woman,” and Daughters of Destiny performed a praise dance. Yeily Martinez gave a reading, “Why We Celebrate Black History.” Several students from a fifth-grade class performed a skit of famous African American inventors in a beauty shop setting. The student body sang three songs, “I Have A Dream,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” and “Over Yonder,” led by East Side music teacher Mrs. Lynn Holt. Ms. Daphne Maclin sponsored the event.
