Mary Fisher, the eighth grade homeroom teacher, coordinated the students as they read poetry, sang songs, recited prayers and performed choral readings to pay tribute to Doctor King. The program concluded with the singing of the Black National Anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” In addition to family and friends, the seventh and eighth grade mentors also attended the program. Students met with their mentors after the program to share their first semester report cards and to discuss goals for the second half of the school year.
