Celebrating MLK Day!
As you know, all Fraser Public Schools will be closed on Monday, January 16th, in observance of MLK Day. While this is one specific date chosen each year to honor his legacy and share his message, teaching our students about kindness, equality, compassion, and justice are a part of what we do each day.
This week and throughout February as we celebrate Black History Month, we will be teaching our Eagles about African-American heroes of the past as they learn about slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, and other areas of American history. They will also learn about today's African-American heroes who are contributing to our American culture in so many positive ways.
In studying the past and discussing the present, students develop empathy and understanding to create a more unified, equal future for all Americans. MLK's message is as important today as it was 60 years ago.
If you would like some additional activities to do with your children, here is a downloadable activity book with coloring pages, mazes, and other age-appropriate activities to support students as they learn about the Civil Rights Movement, MLK, and various other heroes of that time.
We encourage all of our Fraser Families to take advantage of the day off of school to learn more about the legacy of Dr. King.The Interfaith Center for Racial Justice is hosting an event in Mt. Clemens. Additionally, Little Guide Detroit has compiled a list of activities and events available in our area.
Upcoming Band Concert
Our first full elementary band concert is scheduled for Wednesday, January 25th at 7:00 P.M in the Fraser High School gym. Students must be in the gym with their equipment set up by 6:30 P.M. for a group warm-up before the concert. For attire, please have your students wear a white top, black bottoms, and black shoes.
Prior to the concert, please make sure your student has everything they need: instrument, book, stand, new reeds, etc. so that rehearsals can go smoothly. If you need help getting any of the necessary equipment, please don't hesitate to reach out--I am more than happy to help.
If you have any questions or need anything from me, please let me know. I'm looking forward to our first full performance of the year. Have a great day!
