Dear Waggoner Families,
I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy as the stay at home order continues. Thankfully, the sky is blue and the sun is shining! I hope that you are able to get outdoors and enjoy a hike or a bike ride and take in some fresh air. I hear the forecast for Wednesday is 70 degrees!
In addition to the beautiful weather, Friday January 15th is also the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In honor of his birthday there is no school on Monday January 18th. The work and life of Dr. King was spent in pursuit of justice, love, and peace for all, and we would like to invite you to join in a project to amplify his powerful words as a school community. Although the holiday comes each January, we hope that his words can inspire us all year long.
A special thank you to Mrs. Petersen and Mrs. Luna for creating an amazing project with an opportunity for learning and reciting a quote from Dr. King using Flipgrid! Below you will find a video introduction along with a slide deck featuring some of the most famous quotes by Dr. King. Students (and families) are invited to choose a quote (or find another quote by MLK if you have another you love) to practice and recite. We are excited to hear our voices unite together sharing some of Dr. King's greatest words. And we are inspired by our Waggoner students- our students are our future!
