Dear Dr. MLK, Jr. Family,

Calling ALL Hearts!!!

You may or may not be aware, but there is A LOT going on within and around our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School…

Next week we will have two opportunities to stand together as a school community. We are shifting the PTA meeting from our usual Tuesday (11/14) time to Monday (11/13) evening. Why? Because there’s a PPS Board meeting on Tuesday evening where important discussions that will impact our school and community will take place, and we need to be there in force to show the board that we are one, strong school community and that they can’t make decisions about our school, our building and our community without us. NOTHING ABOUT US WITHOUT US!

The PTA meeting will be Monday, November 13 at 5 p.m. in the school library (childcare and dinner provided.) The PPS Board meeting is Tuesday, November 14 at 6 p.m. at 501 N Dixon. If you want more information about the boundary and middle school conversation, including how ALL Dr. MLK, Jr. students and community members may be affected, come out to the Monday PTA meeting for information, organizing and sign making. Tuesday evening we want to have a strong turnout and visual presence at the PPS board meeting. If you can only come out to one meeting, come to the board meeting on Tuesday.

Our students are worth this fight…
We will Persist!
We will Prevail!
Our children Will be groomed for excellence, not for jail…

Your PTA Executive Board
