On Monday, January 9th, Ms. Shawntye P.,(a Life Enrichment Instructor) received the Staff Member of the Quarter award for the 4th Quarter. My classmates and I are very proud that Shawntye is the staff member in our class. On Friday, January 13th, the Arc Participants remembered the life and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Participants read a short biography that told of Dr. King’s teachings about equality and his “I Have a Dream” speech. I truly believe that Dr. King would be so proud to know that his dream is slowly becoming a reality. Monday, January 23rd was the start of the Chinese New Year; the year of the dragon. We learned which zodiac sign that we were born under. Some of the other Participants also made Chinese lanterns. We celebrated the Chinese New Year by eating egg rolls and watching an educational video about the Chinese people and their culture. So that was how we finished the month of January at the Arc.
I hope that everyone has a fabulous February
