Suquamish Elementary students honor MLK | Slideshow

SUQUAMISH — Work done by students at Suquamish Elementary School to honor Martin Luther King Jr. culminated in an assembly Jan. 17 in the school gymnasium.

Speeches were presented by students, along with a play/skit and a fifth-grade performance of Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday."

Several fifth-graders were scheduled to present speeches and hold anti-bullying activities in classrooms, Wednesday through Friday. The purpose was to inform students about Martin Luther King and his dream of non-violence, and racial and social equality.

Students also wrote a Peace Contract, which they hope all students sign.

Earlier in the year, Suquamish students celebrated the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream" speech. A peace march was held Sept. 20. Sixty students participated.
