Noble Elementary School celebrates Womenís History Month

Noble Elementary School is celebrating Women’s History Month in March. Organized and planned by the Women’s History Month committee of the school’s PTA, the slogan is “Women’s History is Everyone’s History.” Activities at the school were designed to help students and adults think about ways they can work toward full equality of all people.

The PTA committee hopes to teach everyone that history and contributions of all people are important. The month’s programming will consist of prominent Northeast Ohio women visiting Noble classrooms to speak with students about their personal histories. Speakers will tell about their own life journeys, the obstacles they faced and the encouragement they received that helped them reach where they are today. Each class will have a speaker each week during the four weeks in March.

Other activities include a professional actor portraying Stagecoach Mary Fields, a woman who lived and worked in Ohio in the 19th century and became an entrepreneur, stagecoach driver, and a pioneer. The Young Ladies of Noble will present a 10-minute skit titled “Women of Rock and Roll” on Friday, March 30. A lecture for adults on the topic “What Women’s History Month Is and Why Is There Still a Need for It?” will be delivered by Renee Sentilles, professor at Case Western Reserve University, on Tuesday, April 3, at 7:00 p.m.
