J.E Clark Preparatory Academy hosted its 5th Annual Taste of Africa Celebration on Wednesday, February 24. Despite the inclement weather, Clark parents and community members still attended the annual event which showcases a variety of educational and cultural performances and delicious foods!
Students had the opportunity to “tour” regions of Africa and discover various aspects of African history and culture, and its influence on the Americas. Students in grades K –8 collaborated using music, technology, art and food. The event welcomed more than 100 parents and students this year!
Some of this year’s events included:
- African Fashion Show
- African Story Tellers
- African Poetry Pieces
- Cake Bake Contest
- African Exhibit/Museum
- Photo Booth
- Authentic African Food
- African Drummers/Dancers Balloon Twist
The Event Coordinator was Social Studies Teacher Stacee Smith, along with Clark staff and Principal Demond Thomas. The gym was transformed into the Great Continent of Africa and the event was deemed a huge success!
