Announcement title 

This week has also afforded our school community the unique opportunity to honor the memory and legacy of our founder, Emma E. Booker.   As Dr. Shelley has shared, there is a trip planned to St. Petersburg to assist in the maintenance of the historical African-American graveyard, Lincoln Cemetery.  As with many practices in the past, when Emma E. Booker was laid to rest she was buried in a segregated cemetery.  Sadly, like many of the vestiges of racism, the resources to care for and protect the sacred grounds of those buried at Lincoln Cemetery are scarce. 

There is a community service initiative scheduled for Saturday Nov. 4th.  A school bus will depart from BHS at 7:15 am.  Volunteers will travel to St. Pete to participate in a project to help with much needed maintenance.  Please see the attached flyer for specific details. Snacks and water will be provided.    

When - Saturday 11/4 from 7:15 am - 1:00 pm

Where - Lincoln Cemetery - St. Petersburg. Bus transportation provided for students and staff.  

What - volunteer opportunity for the Booker schools  

Who - any interested staff or student group/organization - field trip forms must be completed and returned by Wed. 11/1 - available in 1st floor fishbowl 

Why - to assist in the maintenance of the final resting place of our school’s namesake, Emma E Booker. Students can earn 6 hours of community service through Mr. Andrews.
