Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

January 09, 2023
By Julie Strickland

“Not everybody can be famous, but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.”

As we approach next Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which commemorates and honors his life, legacy, impact, and achievements, we encourage the Springmont community to take time to honor and celebrate Dr. King’s story and legacy with your family and by joining others around the nation for a day of service.  

Acts of service can include the entire family and be as simple as collecting stray trash in your neighborhood or local park or assisting or visiting an elderly neighbor. There are also opportunities to join the efforts of local organizations such as those listed below.  

While students will be engaged in learning about Dr. Martin Luther King in class with their teachers, there are also many local opportunities for families to learn about and celebrate his legacy.  Below are links for programs around Atlanta this weekend and Monday, January 16.

We hope you will take advantage of one of the opportunities listed above and share a photo and brief comment regarding your experience for us to share with our community, along with activities taking place in our classrooms, in next week’s Springmont Weekly News.  Please consider sending a photo along with a few words to jstrickland@springmont.com!

Finally, parents may wish to join Britt Hawthorne, a New York Times best-selling author and Montessorian, who will be discussing her book: Raising AntiRacist Children: A Practical Parenting Guide at a virtual book talk on Tuesday, January 17, at 7 pm. Learn about raising inclusive antiracist children in an informed, actionable, and accountable way. This virtual event is free and open to the public. Click here to register.
