Title: Community Social to Celebrate and Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Location: Upland Hills School campus
Next Monday, we will honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As has been the tradition at Upland, school will be in session. We have always felt it was right to be together as a community to learn, celebrate and serve on this day.Typically, we host many alums who return to campus and they participate in the various activities planned. Some years, students have honored Dr. King with an evening lantern walk. Groups have engaged in various service projects over the years. There is always music and singing.This year, we are inviting all students, parents, alums, families and friends to our campus after school. We will light a bonfire and gather outside to reconnect and enjoy time together. Bring your ice skates and sleds for some winter fun. We’ll serve veggie sloppy joes and hot chocolate and cookies for dessert.This is an informal gathering that will start at 3:30 and last until we’re too frozen to keep talking. We ask that all students who stay have parent or adult supervision the entire time. We ask that our alums join us for the after school social in lieu of visiting during the school day.The ‘Beloved Community’ was a central theme in Dr. King’s thinking and teaching and gets at the heart of what we have always strived to be: a love-based school. We hope to see you next Monday.
