We closed out Black History Month with our Black History Bowl! All month long our scholars' their black history facts and refreshed their memory, so they can compete in our annual Black History Bowl. It was close, but there could only be one winner. Congratulations to our Black History Bowl Champ, Christian! 💚❤️🖤

We can't wait to do this again next year!

Happy Career Week! We are so grateful to the students from Howard University College of Medicine, who took time out of their busy schedule to share with our students regarding a career in the medical field! Our students had the opportunity to learn about a career in healthcare, tie a tourniquet, and play several trivia games to test out their medical knowledge. Thank you to our future doctors, Mariah, Kyler, and Diamond!

A special thank you to our school counselor, Mrs. Baylor for organizing this outstanding activity.

Mrs. Hunt’s 8th grade math class used the Sphero to practice coordinate pairs. Each group got a card with a pair of coordinate points. The students had to drive to that point on the mat as a review.

Today, we recognize former Howard University Middle School board member, former parent of a Junior Bison, and a long-time supporter of our school, Dr. Aprille Ericsson. She is an American aerospace engineer, and is currently nominated to be the United States of America’s Assistant Secretary of Defense (Science and Technology), Department of Defense.

Ericsson is the first African-American woman to receive a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Howard University and the first African-American woman to receive a Ph.D. in engineering at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).

Ericsson has served as an engineer, technologist, instrument lead, and project and program manager at NASA for nearly 30 years, lending her technical and managerial expertise to projects including the James Webb Space Telescope, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), and the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2). Currently, she is the new business lead for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Instrument Systems and Technology Division, which connects scientists and project managers with the instrument technologies they need to accomplish their missions. In this role, she fosters partnerships between government agencies and universities, industry, and small businesses.

Dr. Ericsson, we celebrate you and your great accomplishments and thank you for your great contributions to our school!

As we celebrate Black History Month with a focus on African Americans and the arts, we are honored to share the accomplishments of Russell Keith Procope. Procope was an American clarinetist and alto saxophonist who was a member of the Duke Ellington orchestra. Procope was born in New York City, United States, and grew up in San Juan Hill. His first instrument was the violin, but he switched to clarinet and alto saxophone. He began his professional career in 1926 as a member of Billy Freeman's orchestra.

From September 1943 until the end of World War II, Procope served in the United States Army. He was a private with the 372nd Infantry Regiment band. Procope joined the Ellington orchestra in 1946, standing in for Otto Hardwick for one night in Worcester, Massachusetts, and staying until Ellington died in 1974. Procope came to Europe again as a member of this band during the summer of 1950. Like all members of the Ellington reed section except for alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges and tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves, Procope doubled on the clarinet, and it was on that instrument that he made his reputation. Though he was a fine saxophonist who could (and did) play tenor as well as alto saxophone with authority, Procope was most highly regarded for his woody, understated clarinet solos, a warm contrast to fellow reed section member Jimmy Hamilton's cheerful, breezy style. (A hearing of the contrast between the two clarinetists can be heard on Ellington's three-part suite "Idiom '59"; Ellington handed Procope the solo for the slower tempoed opening part, before handing Hamilton the first clarinet solo and the bridge blues solo on the more swinging second part.)

Procope was also highly regarded personally within and outside the Ellington band. "He was", wrote Ellington in Music is My Mistress, "an utterly sober and reliable musician, always to be depended upon." After Ellington's death, Procope toured with Brooks Kerr's trio.

In 1956, Procope recorded The Persuasive Sax of Russ Procope under the London Records label. Procope played the alto-saxophone, along with Remo Biondi (rhythm guitar), Earl Backus (solo guitar), Paul Jordan (piano) Mel Schmidt (bass), and Frank Rullo (drums). Although Procope's early playing reflected the influence of Benny Carter, he had evolved a highly individual style. It combined an essentially lyrical approach with a forceful, swinging attack.
