Celebrating Black History Month 2024
Posted on 02/01/2024
Central Kitsap Schools joins the rest of our nation as we celebrate Black History Month during the month of February.  Since its first official observance in 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month. It is a month where we as a nation intentionally highlight and celebrate the history, contributions, and legacy of Black and African-Americans.

Throughout the month, our schools will join the celebration with activities and lessons that focus on Black history in the United States

We will continue to highlight and celebrate national history and heritage months as a district and in schools throughout the year. This includes Black History Month (February); Women’s Heritage Month (March); Asian American & Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Month (May); Pride Month (June); Hispanic/Latin(o/a/x) Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15); Disability History Month (October); and Native American Heritage Month (November).
