This month, the Upper Grand District School Board recognized and celebrated Black Heritage, Black Brilliance and Black Futures Month.
This month for the Umbrella Project we are focusing on mindfulness. Mindfulness is being aware of what’s happening right now without wishing it was different.
Throughout Black Heritage, Black Brilliance and Black Futures Month, many schools have been celebrating the lives and accomplishments of Black individuals in Canada and beyond.
