Teachers selected their top four papers, and the winning essays were selected from those papers. Northport Dr. Martin Luther King Events Coordinator Diane Reynolds appreciates the time and effort from both teachers and students as we celebrate student writing. Activities this year for MLK events incorporate the theme, “Renewing a Spirit of empowerment, engagement and non-violence!” We are thrilled to participate in related activities.
