Students at Martin Luther King, Jr., Elementary School celebrated their namesake this month with theme-based performances and presentations by every class. This year the students addressed Dr. King’s quest for equality and peace with posters, drawings, songs, poems and recitations from his speeches. All students got involved, said principal Connie Fabian, and all learned the story of the Nobel-prize winner’s life.
The school devoted part of each day to studying and celebrating Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement. Did you know Arizona was the last state to pass desegregation and the state was penalized by sports teams for the delay? King Eighth graders wrote their own versions of Dr. King’s dream for America. They are posted in the cafeteria/gym for all of the students to read.
