Des Moines Students Continue the Dream on MLK Day

There were no classes on Monday at DMPS in deference to Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but Dr. King’s memory was honored around the district, as usual.

Roosevelt High School’s Bridges 2 Harmony choir performed during the Grubb YMCA’s 7th annual MLK Day Prayer Breakfast at the Knapp Center on the Drake University campus, an event that was immediately followed by an MLK Youth Summit.

“Flippin Tha Scrypt” was the theme for the summit attended by some 130 students from Callanan, Goodrell, Hiatt and Weeks middle schools and Lincoln and North high schools.
