Martin Luther King Jr. K-6 School, Dorchester, MA
The mission of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., K-8 School is to work toward the shared goal of preparing students for success in our ever-changing society.
On April 22, 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. addressed a crowd on the front steps of our building which was still called the Patrick T. Campbell school at that time.
The school was renamed on April 11, 1968 to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who had been assassinated the previous week on April 4.
"Lisa and her organization, Storytime Crafts, has been an incredible asset to the King K-8 School since beginning her work with us in the Spring of 2018. Over the past year and a half, Lisa has provided thousands of books to our students and two incredible art chairs that we are proud to make use of in our library.
Lisa's passion for literacy is contagious and students often walk out of one of her events asking for extra books to take home and making special requests for her next visit. The Grove Hall Community has been historically underserved and under-resourced and Lisa's partnership has made it possible to bring books into the lives of all of our students in a way that we would not be able to without her help. Her reach has gone beyond the King as she continues to collaborate with other schools and community centers in our neighborhood. We're thrilled to be a part of Lisa's Kindness Project and we're grateful to Storytime Crafts and Lisa for their continued support of the King community!"
