It was another wonderful week at Alpine Elementary! This week many students learned about Martin Luther King Jr. and the contributions he made to our country. Students learned how his love for learning made him a great teacher and how he taught fairness, courage, and nonviolence. In addition, students learned how he taught the world by way of his example and that we can honor his hard work by being kind and respectful to one another. I encourage families to take a moment to discuss ways in which each member of the family has shown kindness or respect to others recently and brainstorm others ways they carry on the work of Martin Luther King Jr..
