Throughout the month of February, Awty will honor and celebrate Black History Month. We will shine a spotlight on African Americans in the Arts, recognizing their contributions to the visual and performing arts, literature, fashion, folklore, language, film, music, architecture, culinary, and other forms of cultural expression. African American artists have played a pivotal role in shaping our cultural landscape by using art for empowerment and historical preservation. Upcoming events and activities will be posted in Awty Notes.

In the 8th grade physics class, students organized into groups of three and conducted interviews with Awty employees who always get either cold or hot in their work environment.
