Spirit Week is in full effect at KIPP Charlotte and the 5th grade (pride of 2021) has worked hard to express our core value ("Excellence") in our halls. From writing poems to creating college pennants to decorating teacher doors, students have put their all into allowing their space reflect their interests and our pride's culture. So proud of their efforts -- we're hoping to win the hall decorating contest against the 6th-8th grades come tomorrow!
"On the inside we're RED but on the outside we're subdued"
Yesterday the 5th grade had the opportunity to see "If I Could Fly" at the Children's Theatre, a play about a young Black girl living out her inner creative spirit during the 60s. Jamya wanted to re-create the rainbow the girl made in the play and I must say it came out far more wonderful they any of us could have imagined!

Each student created a college pennant as well as a handprint that bears their name and how they are excellent. Below they came up with key concepts that exemplify excellence.
