We celebrate Black History Month!

In February, we celebrate Black History Month.  During this time every year, Canadians are invited to take part in events that honour the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout  history, have helped to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation we know today.  At Light of Christ CES we will continue to learn about the experiences of many inspirational people in history by sharing this information in our classrooms, library and over the morning announcements.  Did you know….. Lewis Latimer was instrumental in making the light bulb more practical and drafted the first drawings for the telephone in 1876.  Did you know ….
