Honoring MLK

First graders at Tamaques School in Westfield honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by reciting a portion of his “I Have a Dream” speech and discussing the meaning of Dr. King’s legendary oration at the March on Washington in August 1963.  “It’s like living your inside out,” said one youngster when asked about a part of the speech where the civil rights leader said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”  Led by the 1st grade team of Linda D’Onofrio, Mary Montes, and Jenna Utman, the students also created a mural poster entitled “Reach for the Highest Good.”
