All Different, But All Equal – Thanks, Dr. King!

 

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

What a privilege it is to enjoy equality and respect despite differences in culture, gender, race and religion. Throughout history, these things have come about mostly because of brave men and women who were willing to stand up for what they believed was right.

The school will be closed Monday, January 20th in observance of Martin Luther King Day. Please join us in celebrating these freedoms (and a day off!), and living out the heart of Dr. King’s work in both words and actions.

*Please note – the school will reopen for classes as usual on Tuesday. Also, we’ll hold regular weekend classes – hope to see you there!*
