Unity at John Hopkins Middle tomorrow



From a Pinellas school district press release:

John Hopkins Middle, in conjunction with Community of Tampa Bay, will sponsor a unity day celebration on Wednesday, April 28, 1:30 p.m. at the school, 701 16th St. S, St. Petersburg. This is the first step in a long-range plan to unite neighborhoods and schools and to build an infrastructure that promotes civility and cooperation.
Teachers and students have undertaken a series of activities to “put unity back in the community” including a quilting project capturing the essence of specified neighborhoods, a study of historical facts of these neighborhoods, an essay contest, and recognition of literary works that include poetry, rap, song and dance.
The culminating activity will be the human formation of the word “UNITY” on the school field. An aerial photo will be taken as a cornerstone for future marketing. Neighborhoods and businesses that are part of the John Hopkins family have been invited to attend.
