As we know, diversity and cultural responsiveness embed our daily school days here at TMS. During some months we may focus on history that has shaped our world. Black History Month was celebrated around our school community throughout the month of February. Black History Month originated in 1926 with a need to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of African Americans. Students heard facts and stories about the significance of many African Americans and their impacts on our world today. We also celebrated the music from the roots of Africa, listened to and read stories, and were mindful in acknowledging these impacts and how they have affected our own personal lives and worlds.
Just a Snapshot of How we Celebrated!

K-8 Collaborative Working Canvas: Students and staff were invited to use the boards in front of the cafeteria to celebrate the diversity of our school, whether it was a picture, artwork, a quote, a poem, etc.
Mission: The mission of The Museum School of Avondale Estates is to inspire students, teachers and the community to collaborate to develop strong critical thinking, interpersonal and academic skills in our students, which will prepare them for real-world success.
