Montessori Students Learn About Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Although Norfolk Public Schools was not in session due to weather, the Montessori students still caught up on their contract work for Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

When asking the Montessori students what this day is about, one student responded, “We honor Dr. King’s dream of our nation united in peace.”  Another student said, “We honor the courage of a man who wanted freedom for others.”   Some of the other words that came up when students were asked about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day were:  equality for all, love, truth, justice, compassion, and the power of forgiveness.

The observation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebrates the remembrance and leadership of his life, legacy and the timeless values he taught.
