LaBelle-SectionSelect students from Evanston Academy, Rockdale Academy and the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) were able to meet the legendary, Grammy Award-winning Patti Labelle as part of the Kroger Family of Stores' Step Up for Black History Month program.

On Wednesday, Feb. 22 at the Kenard Avenue Kroger Store, students from SCPA performed some of Labelle's most beloved songs from 1:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Then, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Ms. Labelle talked to SCPA and Rockdale Academy students about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Students from Evanston Academy had the same opportunity on Thursday, Feb. 23 at the Norwood Kroger Store. Big thanks to Kroger for this exciting opportunity for our students.
