Martin Luther King, Jr. Recognized on St. Mark’s Campus

Early Learning through fifth grade classrooms recognized and celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on St. Mark’s Campus last week. Teachers read younger students age-appropriate books, facilitated hands-on projects, and directed drawing activities. Older students completed research and writing assignments about the impact Martin Luther King, Jr. had on America and the Civil Rights Movement. They also listened to audio from the famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

“So much has changed in my lifetime alone,” Pre-K 4 Instructor Mary Kathryn Smith told students. 

With Black History Month taking place in February, students will continue to learn more about and celebrate Black contributions to U.S. history and culture.
