Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. said…

“We are tied in a single garment of

destiny. Whatever affects one,

affects all.”*

Will announce this contest next week during Advisory Period and encourage you to prompt your kids to participate in this contest!

What does this quote mean to you?

We invite you to get creative and share at the 2021

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration!

Here is how you can participate…

  • Think about the quote above.

  • Express your thoughts or feelings through music, drama, poetry, photography painting, drawing or other forms of art.

3. Take a picture or make recording of what you have created. (Limit is 3 minutes)

  • Send it to us. Your creation will be compiled with others into a video presentation. It will be shared before, during and after the celebration. You can share whether you attend or not.

Principal’s Chat

We introduce self care and further explore this topic with the kids during Advisory Period, we celebrate our students, and I finally lose at Beanboozled (Week 12). In the Week 13 video we share information on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Contest, The Canned Food Drive, and contest for kids to reward kids with their cameras on during class.
