Bridgeport Elementary School students reflected upon the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as they shared presentations during a Title I parent meeting on Jan. 23. Third- and fourth-grade students discussed the impact he and the civil rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s had upon their lives through researched reports, poetry and letters to King himself, speaking as though he were still alive to learn their perspective. The event was part of the Title I Parent Involvement Program, which was formed to help parents and even grandparents support their child’s education.
