MLK Honored At Thomas P. Hughes School

The memory of Martin Luther King Jr. was honored at Thomas P. Hughes School during the month of January.
Some classes at Hughes focused on reading articles and stories about Dr. King’s life, and others wrote about spreading kindness and remembering to include others. Teachers helped students define the terms compassion, selfdiscipline, cooperation, and persistence in relation to Dr. King as well as within today’s culture. These messages are important ones for all of us!
Additionally, Hughes School hosted a special celebration on Martin Luther King Day brought to us by The Seventh Principle – a troupe that brings together traditional African and modern African-American dance while teaching about respecting cultures from opposite sides of the world.
This unique and exciting Cultural Arts program allowed students to honor the day and encouraged the students (and teachers!) to participate according to traditional custom with call-and-response singing and movement.
