At the White House Rose Garden on November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill, proposed by Representative Katie Hall of Indiana, creating a federal holiday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "This is not a black holiday; it is a people's holiday," said Coretta Scott King after President Reagan signed the King Holiday Bill into law. It was observed for the first time on January 20, 1986.


"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

JUST A FEW REMINDERS:

  • DOORS - Our new “buzz in” or Visitor Management System goes liveTuesday, January 19 at which time the front doors will be kept locked. Parents and visitors will have to press the button located outside the school to gain entry into the building. This information has been shared with parents.


  • HOUSEKEEPING -We need assistance with keeping our building clean. Please make sure that your students are picking up after themselves. Many students are leaving trash from breakfast in the hallway and/or tracking food into the classroom. We understand that accidents happen so please let the front office know ASAP if your classroom needs attention. The custodians are vacuuming your classrooms five days a week so please make sure that your chairs are stacked daily and that students are picking up larger items.


  • STAFF PARKING -The parking spaces near the cafeteria are reserved for cafeteria workers. Please use the staff parking lot located on the side of the school if you are not a cafeteria worker.

Weekly Inspiration - "Know Thyself"

Who are you? How much time do you take to explore the depths of You? Would you say you live a fully expressed life? Well, how about this, just for today -- okay, and tomorrow, and thereafter -- how about giving yourself permission to simply tap into your soul -- your true self? How about looking at your reflection, without comparison to others; without competition, but rather with pure love and affection for all that you are, and are not...as yet (the potential exists within). This is not about conceit or arrogance at all, but rather more about embracing the fullness of you, by becoming acquainted with your truth -- your soul. Know thyself my friend. Love thyself...oh, and there is so much to love about you. Knowing thyself means developing the courage to speak up, to express, to explore, to command -- not demand -- what is rightfully yours: your life. You matter. How you express you in the world means not being normal. Yes, you read correctly, not being normal, but rather being natural. Being normal is a condition, a program agreed upon by society. Being natural means connecting with the organics of your soul -- fully, while doing whatever it is you're doing in this world. You are not a carbon copy, you are an original; and, the world loves originals;. After all, that's how you were created.
