January 19, 2015

Greetings!

 

We hope our students are enjoying the long weekend!

 

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Martin Luther King Jr. has now been dead longer than he lived. But what an extraordinary life it was. 

 

At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his "I Have a Dream" speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize. At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope and inspiration that continues today. CLICK HERE to learn more about this inspirational civil rights activist.

Sometime in elementary school, you quit counting your fingers and just know the answer. Now scientists have put youngsters into brain scanners to find out why, and watched how the brain reorganizes itself as kids learn math...
