50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s visit to Berlin

On Friday, September 12, a group of JFKS students from the elementary and high school participated in a memorial event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s visit to Berlin organized by the US Embassy and the Stiftung Berliner Mauer.

Ms. Cook put together a vocal ensemble of 8-9th grade students for this occasion which provided the wonderful musical accompaniment for the celebration.
