Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service at St. Peter’s

January 6th, 2016

St. Peter’s School is participating in the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 18th!

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is an opportunity for our school to build relationships outside our usual community through service. In preparation for participation in the annual MLK Day of Service, SPS students will be discussing Dr. King’s legacy, the many who worked with Dr. King in the fight for racial justice, and the struggle that continues today. Younger students will make personal connections with the concepts of fairness, justice, and philanthropy. Older students explore how individuals can use personal interests and strengths to impact the common good. MLK Day of Service is during school hours on Monday, January 18th. K – 8th Grade students will attend a morning assembly with guest speaker Len Haley, followed by service projects located both on and off campus. PS and PK students will complete a service project before noon, and our Lunch Bunch program will take place as usual for those students who stay. Our day will conclude with an assembly for students in K – 8, which all families are invited to attend as well. Students should wear their SPS sports shirt and clothing that is suitable for a day of work (lots of layers- jeans, sneakers, sweatshirts, etc.). We are lucky to have partnered with a variety of organizations for the day.
