Celebrating MLK Jr.

The WFS community spent time over the last week reflecting and recognizing the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Lower school students sat in silent reflection as they watched our annual kindergarten peace march. Some of the kindergarteners' inspirational messages included, "Help Ech Uther (Help Each Other)," "Kar For Ech Uvor (Care for Each Other)," and "Giv a Complumient (Give a Compliment)," and "Upolougiz (Apologize)." The lower school community then gathered for Meeting for Worship.

"Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” Middle school students used this MLK quote as the basis of their discussion after watching a video about change makers in their midst––from peers to faculty members––who have made a positive difference in the lives of others.

Upper school students listened to the inspirational words of Dr. Aaron Bass, CEO of Eastside Charter School in Wilmington. They then engaged in small group discussions focused on various social justice topics, including anti-semitism, gun violence, and racial justice. Students gathered information about their social justice topic and then took action, brainstorming ways that we can work toward change as a school community.
