Gotham Avenue School Honors Dr. King

            On the Friday prior to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, students and staff gathered at Gotham Avenue School to pay tribute to the life and mission of the famous activist.     

            Principal Marshall Zucker led the assembly, talking about how Dr. King broke down barriers and included everyone.

            Fourth grade students performed “Fight Song,” while fifth grade students sang and danced to “Fight On, Fighter.” Sixth graders closed out the performances by singing “Marchin’ On.”

            “Every child at Gotham was a participant this morning,” said Mr. Zucker, who is retiring at the end of this school year. “This is one of my favorite activities, and I’m going to miss leading this assembly.”
