Dr. King’s work was recognized across the grades. Many students studied Martin Luther King in their classroom. Students discussed what it meant to have a dream and talked about Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream. Students had to decide what their dream would be. First graders brainstormed ways to make the world, school, or community a better place. Students listed topics such as stopping pollution and bullying, helping the homeless, and being fair. Ms. Freitag’s class interpreted one of Dr. King’s speeches and created a visual display of their images, and Ms. Mayfield’s class identified their dreams for a better tomorrow. Mr. Orlowski’s class created a poster for the hallways to remind their peers how diversity enriches us, and Ms. DeBouter’s class discussed civil rights. These are just a few of the ways we honored Dr. King’s memory.
