Morningside Elementary celebrates MLK Day
Students at Morningside Elementary celebrated the life and legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior Monday, sharing their dreams in honor of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
Students filled their day with lessons about the activist and the impact he had on the US during his life. Those lessons featured books and videos and included discussions amongst the students.
First grade teacher Becky Gaul says, “I start with a chant the week before MLK day to get the students interested in the day. I really like to celebrate him to let the students know we want to make the world a better place.”
