Happy Monday morning from Burton Independent School District-January 16, 2017
Hi! My name is Gracie Tuck. I am a 5th grader at Burton Elementary School. Our school has a holiday today to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Today we are paying tribute to Dr. King’s principles, perhaps best known by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
Americans are encouraged to observe this day as not just a day off work but also a “Day of Service” to others with civic, community, and service projects. What can you do today to be of service to others?
We recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. as the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement and his successful protest against racial discrimination in federal and state law.
Congratulations to the Burton High School, Junior High School, and Elementary Winners in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Contest held a week ago Saturday at Round Top-Carmine Elementary School. The winners advance to the HLSR for exhibit in the Hayloft Art Gallery. Great job artists!
