In memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

#DayofService

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is:
what are we doing for others?
-Martin Luther King Jr.

Following in Dr. King’s footsteps by taking action to build a “Beloved Community,” a society based on justice, love, and equal opportunity, high school students were invited to participate in a Day of Service during the Martin Luther King weekend. Some chose to clean up their homes and neighborhoods while others participated in planting the living wall at the new Bushnell Center for Athletics and Community on campus. With these students’ help, the Center is now complete, and the green wall will grow to decorate and replenish the city with fresh air in the West Portal neighborhood. 

 

 

Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.
-Martin Luther King Jr.

The second grade spent a part of their outdoor education day honoring Dr. King through service as well. They chose to pick up trash in our beloved Presidio. The children were eager to help protect nature and made an impact quite quickly, ridding one climbing area of over 10 glass bottles alone! One student exclaimed, “[Martin Luther King, Jr.] would have been mad about all that garbage left behind!” Indeed.
