Mountain Lion Minute
Week of 1/18
Mountain Lion Families,
Tomorrow the nation will celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We can honor his life by remembering his messages of kindness, respect and service, and actively seeking to follow his example. By living with honesty, integrity, and empathy, while embracing a life of service, we can all work to keep Dr. King’s message alive every day.
Even the smallest act of kindness can make a significant difference in the world and in another’s life. Simply holding open a door or offering a reassuring smile can change the course of someone’s day. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I challenge you and your children to complete one small act of kindness every day. See the positive impact that your moment of kindness can create!
Dr. King once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" As principal of Montgomery, I am extremely proud of our school community for constantly seeking new and inventive ways to answer that question. It is a privilege to witness firsthand the generosity of the Mountain Lion family. Each day when I arrive at school, I pass our collections for Manna, Wish Them Well, various Holiday collections, and most recently, our outstanding MLK service projects. I have been overwhelmed with the amount of parents dropping off completed service project kits and clothing donations over the past week. Seeing our students complete service kits at school and discussing the importance of giving in class calls to mind Dr. King’s belief that ‘everybody can be great, because anybody can serve’. Even our youngest Mountain Lions are learning the importance of service, and seeing that they, too, can make an impact. My hope is that these opportunities spark a lifelong passion for serving others.
As we remember Dr. King tomorrow, let’s recommit ourselves to the standard he set, his dedication to peace through love, and the lasting legacy he left behind.
