More than 800 middle schoolers and staff took to the streets in a silent march, Friday, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Student of Maplewood Middle School marched on the sidewalks of MMS, through Maplewood Village and back to the front of the school, all in silence.
“The March is in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and achievements,” school officials said. “This unique silent march should help people reflect upon a man who was committed to fighting nonviolently for equality and peace.”
“His vision of America is indeed responsible for the diversity we so richly enjoy in the Maplewood community and school,” they added. “We are not only honoring the man, but his message as well.”
