Students Contributing Art, Music To Tonight’s MLK Celebration

Tonight’s 11th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Celebration at the Fargo Theater includes the creations and vocal talents of students from three groups in the Fargo Public Schools.

Students in Margaret Johnson’s 4th grade art classes at Kennedy Elementary have created three-dimensional moccasins made from craft paper.  The moccasins embody the Native American quote, “Grant that I may not criticize my neighbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasins.”

Fifth grade students in Mary Dalzell’s Art Club at Lincoln Elementary have painted a 5’x10’ mural, “Bridges to Hope,” as well as individual pieces slated for display in the show.

Among the musical groups slated to perform at tonight’s event is the South Campus II Choir.

The involvement by students in tonight’s celebration supports the following goal(s) in the District’s Strategic Plan:

Arts:  Students will experience the visual and performing arts through appreciation, creation, or performance.

Character:  Students will possess sound character and self-esteem that allows them to accept and respect themselves and others.
