Students’ Corner

La’Nya Brown thinks that to make a change, you need to lead by example. So she shared with us this wise quote:

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

I totally agree. Just complaining will not change anything.

The RealDearborn March on MLK Day

Once again, our high school students are putting on the MLK RealDearborn March. Student organizers took time out of their vacation in order to plan this year’s march. The event will be held on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018 (MLK Day) at the Dearborn Performing Arts Center. The march is scheduled to begin at 1:00 PM and end with brief presentations by students and the mayor.
I would like encourage teachers to offer extra credit to students who participate in the march. Students can take selfies at the march in order to prove attendance or they can sign in with Violet Souweidane at the march. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn about civic engagement and civil rights history. Also, the mayor’s office will once again put together a video of the march. Other schools in the Edsel Ford Feeder Track will also be participating.

Here is the information regarding the RealDearborn march:​
