“The time is always right to do what is right.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Monday, January 18 marks the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and this year’s national day of service. In years past, Hubbard Woods has honored Dr. King by coming together and volunteering as a community. This year may look different, but there are still opportunities to serve others and there is certainly space to learn more about diversity and inclusion, civil rights, and our ability to dream.
Hubbard Woods is thrilled to welcome Oba William King, an entertaining educator and poetic storyteller, to help us celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King.
During the afternoon of January 11th, all grades will enjoy an interactive live presentation featuring songs, stories, and folktales related to Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement. On Monday, January 11, the schedule is as follows:
- Grades 3-4 at 12:30-1:15pm
- Grades K-2 at 1:30-2:00pm
Students will access the program via a Zoom link to be distributed later this week.
Further, students and their families will have access to a number of related resources in Schoology. A MLK folder will include a list of books, videos, websites, and local events about Dr. King and his vision.
We also encourage you to volunteer as a family in honor of this national day of service. Families will find a list of local remote service opportunities in the MLK Schoology folder.
Thank you for joining us in celebrating Dr. King, and be on the lookout for additional information as the week approaches.
