International Black History Celebration
Every year Porter Ridge Middle School comes together in a celebration of culture, diversity, and ultimately, unity. Black History Month is a time when we recognize the contributions and struggles of African Americans in our community, our country and the world through our own program - International Black History Celebration.
“International Black History month focuses on the achievements of African Americans all over the world. It is celebrated here at Porter Ridge to bring awareness to our students and staff that when we work together we can accomplish greatness,” said Mr. Samuel Ryan, the event organizer. “This event seeks to involve all cultures while at the same time highlighting the accomplishments of African Americans... International Black History celebration expresses the idea that we are all one family and together we can do marvelous things that will shape the future for many generations to come.”
Art students head to the Mint Museum
The 8th grade year long art classes led by Mrs. Durbin and Mr. Kendrick went on their annual field trip to the Mint Museum of Art in Uptown Charlotte on Dec. 18, 2013.
Students spent the early part of the day involved in guided tours of the art museum and seeing all types of 2-D and 3-D works of art on display.
Tour guides enriched students' knowledge of art from early 19th century through contemporary art.
