The Long Beach Public Schools’ West Elementary School celebrated Unity Day on Jan. 11, when students and staff members came together for valuable activities and lessons. With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day just ten days away, the event tied in the impact of this leader and his contributions to the world. 

Unity Day opened with a viewing of Martin’s Big Words, which is a narrative of Dr. King’s life. Students learned about his dream and its significance, performed songs and presented a play that portrayed the meaning of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and why it is observed nationwide. 

East, Lido and Lindell Elementary Schools will hold their own Unity Day initiatives on Jan. 25. More information will be shared following these events!
