Celebrating Dr. King!


On Friday, January 18th Grahamwood Elementary School hosted A Day of Remembrance. Students, teachers and parents celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The program was presented by Grahamwood’s 2nd graders. The students took turns reciting passages of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. They then led nearly 200 adults in a moving version of the song, “Tear Down the Walls.” Optional teacher Sylvia Albert who coordinated the program stated, “For several years I have had a vision of our 2nd grade students performing Dr. King’s speech. This year, my teaching team and our music department were able to make it a reality. The program was even featured on three local news broadcasts. I am so proud of my students!”
