Highlights From This Week
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - No School on Monday 
"I Have a Dream." These four words are a famous part of American history. They were spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr. on August 28, 1963. He was a Baptist Minister, an activist, and a distinguished leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. He may be best known for his efforts in leading the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous speech, "I Have a Dream." He received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial equality through nonviolence in 1964. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. It is celebrated the third Monday in January each year. Fairmont is proudly celebrating this holiday on Monday, January 21. We hope all our families enjoy the day off and remember Martin Luther King, Jr. and his bravery.
