Class acts: Black history observance Holt Elementary School, Clearfield
Class: Monica Newsome's third grade.
Date: The project ran from January through March 14.
Number of students: 26.
Each student chose a black person who had in some way contributed to American history. A silhouette of each person was painted on a square piece of white cloth that was pieced together with other squares containing silhouettes and biographical information. The pieces were quilted and presented to the school as a per-manent wall hanging March 14.
Location: 448 N. 1000 West, Clearfield.
Principal: Julie Goble.
School district: Davis.
What the teacher hopes the students learned: Newsome said her objective was to teach her students there were many people who contributed to our society who were not recognized. She hopes that the quilting experience will leave a lasting impression on the students. What happens next: They will continue their studies to find ad-ditional people who have contributed to our society but are not well-known.
