Mrs Arnett's 5th Grade Celebrates The Life Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Upon returning to school after several days off for snow, students in Mrs. Minerva Arnett’s 5th grade class at North Magoffin Elementary celebrated the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Throughout the day students participated in a wide range of activities that focused on his life and achievements as a Civil Rights activist. Students listened to excerpts of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, viewed a short documentary about his life, and read the book “Happy Birthday Martin Luther King.” As a culminating event for the day, students were actively involved in performing a play about events that occurred in the 1950’s which fueled the Civil Rights Movement and inspired the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama.
