PYC students and teachers are switching up how learning is done at PYC. Last semester, classes worked together to present Black History Panther Day that included trivia contests, teambuilding activities and a showcase in the Capri Theater. Students performed dance, spoken word and theater monologues, and presented videos, all as part of their class work that was then performed up on stage. It was a very special event!
If you missed Black History Panther Day, plan to attend the next school program which will be coming up in late May. Students are working in groups to study more about how social justice and injustice has had an impact on the history of the Northside community. Students even got to look through old photos of North Minneapolis in the photo archives of the downtown library! Students will also have an opportunity to examine and critique the criminal justice system in a “Justice Colloquium” hosted by PYC Social Worker Asha Belk. Watch for more information on this event in the coming weeks.
SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS: Poor attendance is the biggest reason students fall behind on credit earning goals. As the spring weather hits, we tend to see more absences. Please work with your scholar to come up with an attendance plan for 4th quarter. Thank you.
