Council Rock Makes it a “Day On” in Honor of MLK

For the 13th year in a row, Council Rock School District cel­e­brat­ed the lega­cy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on his birth­day with an expan­sive CR CARES ini­tia­tive. This year’s MLK Day cel­e­bra­tion began at 9:30 AM in the Council Rock High School South Auditorium, where select stu­dents read their win­ning essays on the mean­ing of “A Day On.” State Representatives Thomas and Warren were each in atten­dance to rec­og­nize the stu­dents who deliv­ered their mov­ing “Day On” compositions.

From 9:30 –10:30 AM near­ly 300 stu­dent vol­un­teers worked col­lec­tive­ly to assem­ble CR CARES pack­ages, sort food, and make friend­ship cards and blan­kets for local and inter­na­tion­al dis­tri­b­u­tion to the fol­low­ing groups and orga­ni­za­tions: Wrightstown Food Cupboard, Bucks County Emergency Shelter, Pendell Food Cupboard, Delaware Valley Veterans Home, and Deployed Military at Camp Manio, Iraq.
