Seth Boyden School Honors Dr. King

Read about our all-school assembly in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and see videos of our students singing!

On Friday, Jan. 17, we had our first all-school assembly of the year in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Both Mrs. Glander and Ms. Murphy addressed the students about why there was no school on the holiday and talked about acts of kindness they can do for one other to honor Dr. King.

The students watched a brief educational video about his life and then the entire student body, led by Ms. Van Doornik and the 5th Grade Chorus, sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” “We Shall Overcome,” and “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize.” All grades have been learning these songs in music and we hope you’ve heard your child singing them at home.
