Every January, Orchard View Elementary takes extra time to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and his legacy. It is also important that they take time to learn about the history of civil rights movements and the continued fight for social justice that is currently happening.
Orchard View wants to continue to shape thoughtful, kind, and socially-aware students who are conscious of the world around them.
In the past years, Orchard View has done a Silent March where students created posters about issues that they were passionate about and silently marched through the halls of Orchard View to express themselves. Given the special circumstances of this school year and the COVID-19 pandemic, they created this presentation as an alternative option since they cannot gather in person at this time.
In this slideshow, people will see different ways that Orchard View students have expressed themselves regarding issues that they care about, resources used in classrooms to learn about social justice and MLK, and additional resources at the end if you wish to continue your learning on this subject.
