In remembrance of Martin Luther King Day, the social studies classes decorated a cut out of their hand to create a "Hands United as One" door cover, which signifies MLK's dream that everyone be treated fair and as equals. The globe of hands is a reminder that in order to obtain peace, we need to put our hands together instead of apart in order to spread peace throughout our community and throughout the world.
