  • Black History Month logo Food for the Soul, a Celebration of African American Cultural Influence

    The year we will celebrate Black History Month with a special evening program, Food for the Soul, a Celebration of African American Cultural Influence on February 22.  This educational event will highlight the history of soul food and how it has touched our community and families at Caughman Road.  The Chorus and Hip Hop Dance will be performing  throughout the evening.

    Parent permission forms were sent home earlier this month.  If you would like to participate in this event and make a dish for everyone to sample please let your child’s teacher know or fill out the form and return it with your student by February 14.  Please do not feel limited to the dishes on the permission slip, we would love to have any dish that is special to you and your family!  We have also sent home family recipe interview questions which we would like you to share. The recipes and interview questions will be displayed the night of the program.

    Don't cook?  Don't worry...for other ways to help with the event contact us.
