5th Grade MLK Program
On January 14th, the fifth graders led the Martin Luther King Day assembly for the middle school. Each class contributed songs and skits to a video presentation of “Martin Luther King: The Musical.” Mrs. McCann, Mrs. Hicks, Ms. Steinig, and Mr. Thaler supervised and directed the fifth graders as they were broken up into groups and picked familiar songs. The students then changed the lyrics of each song to connect to Dr. King and his achievements. Finally, each group choreographed dance moves to go along with their chosen song. Mr. Thaler videotaped and edited each song for the final presentation. At the end of the assembly, Mrs. Schon played her keyboard and accompanied the entire fifth grade as they sang a song about Martin Luther King, Jr. It was an amazing experience that the fifth graders will always remember.
