Black History Jeopardy Begins

Competition in Black History Month Jeopardy begins this week. Grade-level teams are competing in the first two weeks of February, and then grade-level winning teams will compete in the last two weeks of the month. The SJB Diversity Committee, made up of parents and faculty, designed and planned the tournament to be fun and educational. Each grade has four games in February, and each game lasts 40 minutes. Teachers set times for the in-class games. The school-wide tournament games are written into the class schedules for February.

Thank you to the Diversity Committee parents who did the research and work on the packets of Black History questions.

Teams deliberate during Black History Jeopardy.
