Northport K-8 School presented a noteworthy performance at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade held recently in Ft. Pierce. The weather was beautiful and the students, parents, and staff were thrilled to participate in such a wonderful and traditional event to help enhance community relations and mark the day with a flourish. Special thanks to the Northport MLK committee members for working so diligently to make sure that Northport was represented and Martin Luther King’s theme for 2016, “Dream Forward: Choose Peace, Equality, and Change” was uplifted in true Northport fashion. Thanks to Debra Allen, Diane Crumpton, Valerie Hill, Megan Hill, Michelle Kovich, Marie Solide and Christine Davis as well as the Northport Band Director Brian Hoce and everyone else who helped in any way. We had a first-rate float, and the cheerleaders and band students offered a stellar performance. The performance can be viewed on the Northport K-8 School Face Book page. Northport truly promoted the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “We must keep moving. It you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means, keep moving!”
