We had a 3 day break this past weekend to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. day. We wanted to take a moment on here to honor his legacy of acceptance and equality for all.
Our Sunflowers class especially talked about how Dr. King wanted everyone to have the same rights, no matter what they looked like. Ms. Megan and Ms. Tabbi talked about how we have rights here at school too. They explained what a “right” is and gave examples, such as a right to learn and grow in their classroom, a right to eat their lunch inside, and a right to go to the bathroom. They explained to their friends that like they have their rights at school, Dr. King was an advocate for the rights of everyone in our country to be able to all do the same things, no matter who they are or what they look like. All of the friends in the Sunflowers class were engaged and very attentive to the conversation! They all agreed that being different, in whatever way, does not take away from how special they are and what they can contribute and accomplish in their lives.
He was a great advocate for peace between all. May we remember his legacy and example.
