Aki Believes in Peace.

Aki Kurose Middle School students have been preparing to represent their values loud and proud at this years Martin Luther King, Jr march.

During lunch Aki student’s have been writing powerful belief statements inspired by the murals that cover their hallways. These belief statements generated the statements written on the signs they’ll use to march with. During lunch they’ve also managed to fold almost 300 peace cranes. These cranes will fly in the air, attached to their signs and will be handed out to other participants and spectators along the route of the march.

The morning of Martin Luther King Day 14 Aki students will gather at school while others are at home sleeping in. They’ll have an opportunity to watch the infamous MLK speech and discuss the connections between his values and the values of their peers. We’ll then join the MLK Day Ralley at Garfield High School and March with our Aki Kurose signs held high! Students who participate on this Monday off will create the curriculum for their next all school curriculum day, in which they’ll focus on hopes and dreams for the future.

Aki Kurose students believe in Freedom.
Aki Kurose students believe in Respect.
Aki Kurose students believe in Peace.

Stay tuned for pictures of the March and words from the students.
