A Call to Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

Monday when we are out of school to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I have challenged my students to find some way during some part of their day to serve others. This could be something as simple as cleaning out their closet and donating things they’ve out grown to a local charity with a clothes closet, or helping mom or dad around the house, raking leaves for a neighbor, anything that would be a service to others. Students remember to leave a comment about your act of service or write it down on paper and bring it to class, I can’t wait to discuss in class on Tuesday all of the creative ways you found to be of service to others.

We have had a fabulous start to 2017! It’s hard to believe that the school year is halfway over! Your students have grown so much and will continue to grow thoughout this second semester. Be sure to check out their blog posts “2017” and see what they are most exited about this new year!

This next week students will be completing their “History of Things” projects, this is something we have been working on since last semester. Students will be presenting with a program called Prezi, I’m looking forward to seeing them bring all of their hard work to life with this program. Final projects must be completed by January 18th!
