Happy Monday! I hope you are enjoying the day off!

In honor of MLK Jr. Day, Mrs. Cain's Social Studies class put together a beautiful class mural (below) with messages of kindness, strength, and peace. This is a perfect way to pay homage to Martin Luther King Jr., a courageous man who helped change the course of history by never backing down in his stand against racism. Through his faith, use of words, and acts of nonviolent resistance, he was able to show love and promote peace in the face of tremendous adversity.
