MLK Day – A Day On – Not a Day Off

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

–       Martin Luther King, Jr.


Remembering Martin Luther King’s challenge to do something for others, the Martin Luther King Holiday is observed as a national day of service.  Since 1994, citizens around the United States had used this day as a “day on, not a day off.”  More than ever, we need citizen action to address today’s social challenges.


The Specials Areas Team at Fox Hill has designated the 2013 – 2014 school year as “A Year of Peace at Fox Hill.”  As part of this initiative, the students, staff and families of Fox Hill Elementary School are challenged to find a project over the King Holiday weekend to serve their families, neighbors or communities. The service may meet a tangible need, or it may meet the need of the spirit.  The impact of these projects will strengthen our community, empower individuals, bridge barriers and create solutions.


On Friday, January 17th, your child will bring home a record sheet for this project.  Please also record the impact that this activity may have had as a result of your involvement.  We will celebrate your accomplishments by posting your “I have a dream” cloud on a special bulletin board honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. here at Fox Hill.


Thanks for your interest and involvement!
