Students demonstrate MLK’s qualities at Downing School in Malverne


Malverne’s Maurice W. Downing School first graders in Bridget Jelovcic’s class learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and how he earned the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

As a family-culminated activity, each students’ parent(s) wrote qualities their child exhibits that are similar to King on the back of a medal they decorated.

The students were then surprised with the medal and presented it in front of the class.
