Monday, Jan. 20, the North Fork Community Montessori School students presented a Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.
The music teacher, Paul Frazier, and a group of parent musicians spent the morning with the upper elementary classrooms writing songs about Martin Luther King Jr. Later, they sang the songs for the audience.
The lower elementary classroom researched and presented information about Thomas Edison, Helen Keller, Abraham Lincoln, The Wright Brothers and Harriet Tubman and their influence on the world.
The primary classrooms sang a song about peace. They also did a demonstration showing how eggs are all different on the outside, but are the same on the inside, using brown, tan, white and cream-colored eggs. The children spoke to the audience about how people are the same way — different on the outside, same on the inside.
The head of the school, Bill Eyler, closed the morning celebration asking the children to go about their day doing something special for someone else and to remember Martin Luther King's message of "peace."
The North Fork Community Montessori School is a public school, part of the Delta County School District and has received numerous awards from the Colorado Department of Education.blog comments powered by Disqus
