Last week the Tower Hill Lower School celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday with a series of events over several days.
First, Arturo Bagley, Upper School history teacher whose aunt was Coretta Scott King, led a discussion with Lower School students and shared a video he created, commemorating the history of Coretta Scott King’s family.
Next the faculty and staff joined together on stage to perform a choral reading, highlighting the life and times of Dr. King.
Upper School Student Diversity Club member Melissa Lynch led Lower School students in an activity designed to raise awareness of the privileges we enjoy.
First grade students recited poems at lunch, emphasizing the courage of Dr. King.
Our youngest Tower Hill students, the class of 2020, demonstrated the power of unity of joining in a silent “March for Peace” through the cafeteria.
