Posted by User Not Found on 21 January, 2015

During a school-wide assembly on January 16, Challenger Elementary School celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The assembly featured music coordinated by music teachers Laura Raff and Hank Klein and by Dean of Students, Chelsea Dziedzic. Students carried signs that honored Dr. King and promoted unity and acceptance as they entered the assembly. First and fourth grade students performed the songs “One Nation" and "Over My Head." The assembly also included a history of the holiday and a reading of the book “White Socks Only” by Evelyn Coleman. The assembly concluded with the song "We Shall Overcome," led by the fifth grade students. Students, staff, and community members joined in the song as they exited the assembly.
