Today is Day B


It’s Friday Kind-day! In honor of his birthday on Monday, we would like to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by listening to one of his speeches. It is important to note that this speech was given the night before Dr. King was assassinated. As you will hear, his expectation was that we would carry on his work. Remember his words: “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”


Please listen respectfully to Dr. King’s speech.



Today’s cozy winter party spirit day winners are:


6th grade: Lakshmi Nair & Natalie Au

7th grade: Amy Claxton & Sofia Ducore

8th grade: Zoe Rau & Adeline Acciarito


Please pick up your prize in the Main Office.
