Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. day with community service
Students will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday as a call to action, a day of service focused on making the communities with which we engage more equitable in order to facilitate the "Beloved Community" of Dr. King's dream.
Most of our students grades 8-12 will be working with members of the BIPOC/Migrant community of Lewiston in a variety of fashions including:
teaching a group of 25 students to ski
facilitating a basketball clinic for grades 5-8
accompanying a group of children to the Bates College MLK Day workshops focused on Art and Activism and spending the day with the event's keynote speaker
mentoring Afghan and Somali children in family homes
teaching English and Citizenship classes for recent migrants
running a weaving workshop
working on an environmental sustainability and justice program
