Gotham Avenue School hosted its second annual Peace and Love March and assembly to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., on Jan. 12. Leading up to the event, each class discussed Dr. King’s life and message, as well as his historic peace march.

Students created signs depicting peace and other positive messages for the school’s march, which was held throughout the main hallways and the front sidewalk of the building.

Following the march, assemblies were held in the gymnasium. The first assembly had kindergarten through second graders performing in honor of Dr. King. Kindergarteners kicked off the assembly by performing You-Nique by QuaverEd. First graders then sang Everyday People by Sly & The Family Stone and second graders sang Heroes (We Could Be) by Alesso featuring Tove Lo. The second assembly was for grades 3-6. Fifth graders shared a rendition of poems, including “The Life, “The Dream” and “The Legacy.” Fourth graders sang “Shine Your Way” by Owl City and Yuna. Third graders sang “Love Train” by the O’Jays. Sixth graders concluded the assembly with a performance of “Walk with Me” by GoldFord.

The event was organized and led by teacher Arielle Parisi.

Boyle also discussed cyberbullying with the students, explaining how harmful it can be. She said to always alert a trusted adult if the students see or hear about cyberbullying.

Boyle concluded the presentation with the motto “S.T.O.P. Then Send,” which stands for “Study the content, Think about others, Only send if appropriate, and Pictures are forever.”
