On Monday, January 20, 2020, Community Day School will be in session for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Instead of taking the day off, for the fifth consecutive year, we will take on the essential themes of this important day in a meaningful way, coming together as a school community and with the broader Pittsburgh community to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King.
CDS students will spend the day engaged in learning and social action aligned with the guiding theme for this year’s experience―”Nation.” They will focus on issues of race, equity, social justice, immigration, and the history of our own country, and what they can do to create a better United States and a better world.
The day will begin with special morning tefillah (prayer service) and singing at 8 a.m., followed by a multimedia experience featuring Emmy Award-winning Pittsburgh director and composer Emmai Alaquiva known for his impact across multimedia platforms. Our morning events are open to CDS parents and the community, concluding by 9 a.m.
