RAHWAY — Rahway Middle School celebrated Black History Month in February. Throughout the month, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students were exposed to various influential and important African Americans who have made positive contributions to society and our way of life. All disciplines and grade levels participated in the celebration by producing artifacts that showcased the work of these individuals.
