MLK march! Raising awareness of poverty and hunger.

Our annual MLK march to celebrate the fight for social justice happened today with an amazing new twist. The school collectively decided to address hunger in our community by having each student bring two dollars to donate to the food bank. We raised almost $2000! It was a beautiful march down the street from Orca to Rainier Ave.- complete with homemade signs and students chants. This annual event really displays our commitment to students using their voices and their minds to create change and embody the spirit of Dr. King. The Rainier Valley Food Bank could really use the money and they were very happy and honored to receive it. Thank you to Mr. C’s class for helping organize this new angle!
