Elementary students district-wide learn “We Shall Overcome”

Elementary students around the district are uniting in voice this month by learning and singing the song, “We Shall Overcome.”

Music teachers based classroom discussion of the use of this song to make changes during the Civil Rights Movement, as an anthem sang during marches and rallies. A few classes have also listened to the book, “Sing A Song; How ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ Inspired Generations.”
