Today we remember Harriet Tubman, an escaped enslaved woman who helped others gain their freedom as a “conductor” of the Underground Railroad. She led people to freedom and participated in anti-slavery efforts. Her life’s work still serves as an inspiration for people from every race and background.

We continue to reflect and remember civil rights leaders to honor their bravery and legacies. Today we reflect on Frederick Douglass, who escaped slavery and became a leader in the abolitionist movement. The abolitionist movement was an organized effort to end the practice of slavery. He continued to be an advocate for African American rights. We honor his legacy of equality among all.
Our teachers look forward to discussing with you your child’s accomplishments and academic goals during parent teacher conferences. Reminder, there will be half day dismissal during these days. Please reach out to your child’s school if you have any questions.

Happy 111th Birthday, Arizona! Arizona became the 48th state of the United States on February 14, 1912. Today is also Valentine’s Day and we at Isaac would like to express our love and appreciation to our Isaac Staff, students, families, and the great state of Arizona.
As Black History Month continues, today we reflect on Jackie Robinson who became the first African American player in Major League Baseball. He broke the color barrier in a sport by fighting for what he believed in, equal opportunity for all. After retiring from baseball in 1957, he became a civil rights activist alongside Martin Luther King Jr. His courageous efforts played a major role in history, both on the field and throughout American society.
