Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Assembly

Please join us on Friday, January 24th for our observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the school cafeteria from 9:30-10:30.

Dear Highland Terrace Families.

Our Equity Team has been considering a change in the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Observance dates and assembly.  We talked with a few teachers and are going to move forward with a change. We believe strongly in the pre-teaching lessons and learning for our community and want all classrooms to do the learning prior to the assembly.

Below are updated dates for the observance.  

  • Friday, January 17:  Read book, Martin’s Big Word by Doreen Rappaport
  • Tuesday, January 21:  Read book, My Brother Martin by Christine King Farris

  • Wednesday, January 22:  Read book, My Uncle Martin’s Big Heart by Doreen Rappaport

  • Thursday, January 23:  Listen to Dr. MLK speaks to his daughter about Racism "Fun Town"

  • Assembly:  Friday, January 24 from 9:30-10:30 am in the cafeteria/gym.  The Informal Principal Conversation schedule for this time will be canceled.
