Black History Jeopardy Finals Are Today
The Black History Jeopardy finals take place in the Gym at 1:45 pm today (Tuesday, Feb. 28). Students and classes in grades 1-8 compete in lower-grade and upper-grade games.
Schoolwide games started last week. See a 30-second clip of the competition.
In the first two weeks of February, grade-level teams played against each other to determine which team would go to the schoolwide competition.
The SJB Diversity Committee, made up of parents and faculty, designed and planned the tournament to be fun and educational during February's Black History Month. This is the second year of the schoolwide competition, and the students have enjoyed themselves and performed exceptionally well in answering the questions.
Thank you to the Diversity Committee parents who did the research and work on the packets of Black History questions.
