The Monday Update

January 19, 2015





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.


Drama Club first meeting for Drama Club this year will be Tuesday, January 20.


Any students (5th-8th grade) who would like to sign up may do so until January 27.
