MLK Day


Sunday 16th January

Monday 17th January 9.30 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.

Benefitting St. Vincent’s Church, Germantown

Join in the annual observance of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday 17th January at 9.30 a.m. at The Waldorf School of Philadelphia.

Our regular school schedule is suspended for the day, but WSP families will be here with a special day of community service in honor of Dr. King.  The program starts with a short assembly that focuses on the life and work of Dr. King.  Students from Parkway High School dance will perform a hip-hop dance about peace and non-violence.

Our service project has two components, the work of which will benefit programs at St. Vincent’s Church in Germantown.  First, young children will decorate brown snack bags and pack them for children who attend the after school programs at St. Vincent’s.  Older children and adults will help prepare vegetable soup and cornbread for delivery to the community dining program at St. Vincent’s.  Lastly, we have a project of our own that is to finish painting the staircase in Eagles II.

Choose a project and join in!  Nothing brings people together like sharing work with a common purpose.  The day of service will end at 12.30 p.m. with a brief period of reflection followed by a round of “Happy Birthday, Dr. King” and birthday cake!

To get involved turn up at 9.30 a.m.  See you there!
