Fifth-grade students at Heights-Murray Elementary School recently celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday with a presentation from Todd Jones. Jones used Prezi software to discuss some of the individuals who stood for equality and civil rights. Some of the people the students discussed were Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Frederick Douglas, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson and Barrack Obama. The students worked together to create ‘Dreams’ they had by using an online site that allows multiple users to post and share text and images live on a single wall. The wall was projected on the Smart board so that everyone could see their peers’ dreams and hopes. At the event, from left, first row, are Kimnaja Johnson, Jesus Morals, Marina Ardo-Boyko, Lizbeth Guzman and Timothy Aberant. Second row: Jessica Palakoski, fifth-grade teacher; Jones; Hal Gabriel, principal; Robert Makaravage, assistant principal; and Helen M. Semanski, fifth-grade teacher.
