City Honors will hold the 41st Annual Martin Luther King Jr. ‘Keeping the Dream Alive’ Assembly on Friday, January 22 at 9:00am.
Parents and community members may use this link to attend the assembly.
Our students have been working studiously to prepare for this event, but there is plenty of unknown and sure to be some glitches as we hold this assembly remotely for the first time in its history. Thank you for your patience!
This year we honor the memory of Mrs. Irene McVay, the founder of the Keeping the Dream Alive Assembly at City Honors School. Mrs. McVay passed away on November 20 of this year. (Learn more about Mrs. McVay)
The assembly will be hosted live by Kaylani Williams '21 and Nabihah Ahmad '21. Student volunteers in all grade levels have prepared both live and prerecorded presentations to celebrate our commitment to a just, egalitarian society and carry on the work of the Civil Rights Movement after the example of Dr. Martin Luther King, Mrs. Irene McVay, and many others.
A moderated audience Q&A will be open before, during and after the event. Q&A submissions from audience members do not post immediately to the entire audience, but are first reviewed by moderators. Please enjoy the use of the moderated Q&A, but please understand that, due to time and space constraints, not all Q&A submissions can be published during the event. All Q&A submissions are saved for the moderators and we will do our best to respond to all your questions and comments after the event if there is not time to include them during the event.
Live captions will be available in several languages. A video of the entire event will be made available after the assembly. Transcripts in Arabic, Chinese (simplified, PRC), Spanish, Swahili, Urdu and Vietnamese will be made available as well.
The Keeping the Dream Alive Assembly and many of the student groups that help to organize this event, are funded by the City Honors/Fosdick-Masten Park Foundation. Please consider a contribution to the Foundation’s Irene McVay Legacy Fund to keep this good work alive and well.
Thank you to grade 5 student, August Williams for creating this year’s event poster!
