The first graders sang, danced,and performed skits for a crowd of proud parents.

"It's black history month and here we celebrate it every year with our PTO program we do a black history play, it teaches the kids about civil rights and the types of people that were involved, like Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.," Julia Hughes, Lamar Reese Dance Teacher.

The students have been practicing for the Black History presentation since early January.
