As a community school, it is important that Cheatham represents the students and families we serve. This includes ensuring a diverse educational experience, giving insight into the
many cultures present on our campus.

Black History Month offers the perfect opportunity to highlight the values we hold at Cheatham. Every day students learned about influential Black Americans throughout history. They also participated in a door decorating contest. The winning class, Ms. Hermann’s first grade, was given books by Black authors to add to their personal libraries at home. We know that providing access to books by diverse authors gives our students an authentic look at stories that mirror their own lives. We are thankful for the people that help make the education offered at Cheatham one that is inclusive and equitable for all. And, we love celebrating it each and every day!

Thank you to community member Kim Udermuder Domovich for helping to obtain these special books.
