We Celebrate the Life and Accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In preparation for the assembly to honor the life of Martin Luther King, we discussed many of his accomplishments and the accomplishments of the various people who worked with him in the struggle for Civil Rights.

The discussion was as valuable and informative as any we have had this year. This group of students continues to prove itself as being extremely thoughtful and inquisitive. Here is an Animoto we created based on our conversation.

This is a video shown at the assembly to help us think about how we can carry Dr. King's dream forward.

Thank you:

  • Mr. Strobel and Ms. Short for preparing the students to sing such wonderful songs at the assembly. 
  • to all the students who shared the personal and heartfelt poems. We all appreciated your sincerity and honesty.
  • Ms. Avera's class for the detailed and informative timeline.
  • to all the parents and family members who attended. It means a lot to us that you were there.
