5/9 and 5/10: Stagewrite

The reviews are in!


The plays were AMAZING! Each of the 5th grade playwrights worked extremely hard! Ryiu's dragon slayed the show, Jayden reminded us all how important reading can be, Hannah showed us that we can work through feelings and family, Marquita taught us that being real is much more important than being fake, Asher let us jam out to some old tunes, and Leo showed us how much teachers have to do every day!

3/1 Black Wallstreet: Black Heritage Event

Starr King’s Black Wallstreet event featured painting, jewelry making, hair braiding, music, African dress and food. Thank you to AAPAC for hosting the event! Video by Monica J. and pictures by Monica J. and Martha Q.

This event was named in honor of the Blackwallstreet market in Greenwood, a vibrant black business community in Tulsa, OK, which was tragically destroyed in the 1921 race riots. Read more information about the historic Black Wallstreet here.

Black History Month -- February 2019

We celebrated Black History month at Starr King at our Black Heritage Event, where each grade did a presentation celebrating African and African-American culture. If someone sends me a picture of what I understand is a beautiful mural the 5th graders did about the history of hip-hop, I will post it! In the meantime, Ms. Erickson has decorated her door for the month: wow!
