Week At A Glance JAN. 18-22

Monday, January 18 NO SCHOOL in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. | American University,  Washington, D.C.

As we honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., during these trying times, I am reminded of Dr. King’s dream that we as a nation, “live out the true meaning of its creed, that all men are created equal.” At Camarena we continue to strive for equity! At Camarena we value each individual’s uniqueness! At Camarena, we too have a dream to make the world a better place for everyone! In the words of Langston Hughes, “Hold fast to dreams for when dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly. —Dr. McLaren
