During our Monday Morning Assembly, Park Century kicked off our celebration of Black History Month. PCS parents introduced a video about Carter G. Woodson and the origin of the celebration. They also played a video of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. They invited students, staff, and all members of the PCS community to contribute their dreams to our Black History Month bulletin board in the upper school hallway. Stop by to read and share some of the wonderful dreams of our collective community! #blackhistorymonth #ihaveadream #cartergwoodson #mlk #community #parkcenturyschool

On Tuesday, our 7th and 8th graders gathered in the Community Outreach Room for an educational presentation on homelessness in LA. Devin and Rudy from @centerinhollywood shared statistics on why people end up living on the street, discussed common assumptions made about homeless people, and shared ways their organization works to help this population. Following their presentation, they led a Q&A session and had students guess the contents of the hygiene kits they use to approach people who may need help. #thecenterinhollywood #homelessnessawareness #community

“Panthers on 3, Panthers on me...1, 2, 3, GO PANTHERS!” Last night, our girls basketball team won their 5th straight game and maintained an undefeated record this season! Come see if they can keep this momentum for their next game on February 13. Our 5th and 6th grade boys also gave an impressive performance in a very close game vs. Willows. Though they didn’t end up with the win, they never gave up, battling even as the very last second ticked off the scoreboard. Catch their next game on Monday, February 11! #gopanthers #basketball #boysbasketball #girlsbasketball #athletics #youngathletes #teamwork #team
