Pre-K and kindergarten students came together to celebrate renowned Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during an assembly on Jan. 12 at Northeast Elementary School in Amityville.

Students studied Dr. King’s life and his contributions to the United States and the world in their classes. When they gathered for the schoolwide celebration in the school’s gymnasium, Principal Dr. Pauline Collins asked several students to share what they learned. The youngsters cited Dr. King’s commitments to kindness and peace, and how he fought hard to ensure that all students could attend school together regardless of race.

During the assembly, students also watched videos about the life and legacy of Dr. King, and they sang songs about peace.

Dr. Collins said it is important for students to understand why they have a day off from school each January — to celebrate Dr. King’s efforts toward peace and equality. She also reminded them to incorporate the values he preached into their everyday lives.
