There are two Federal holidays in the coming weeks. These holidays commemorate two of our leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and George Washington. My thought this week is to set into motion your thinking about how you might learn more about these leaders and their influence on the development of the United States. For students and teachers, we sometimes think about these two days as simply days off in a school year calendar, and I accept that this is the norm, but in both cases, I do not intend to let them be simply a day off. In some years, I have performed service with an organization around Dr. King’s Birthday. For President George Washington, I often pick up a history book that discusses his contributions and read passages. I hope member of our Craig family take a few moments to remember the ideals and positive actions of these two important historical figures in our history.
