In the past, our community has commemorated the contributions of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by opening our doors to our school community, as well as local community groups, in order to pack food for communities of need.
This year, the MLK D-E Day of Service on Monday, January 15, will take on a new format under the leadership of Dr. Mirangela Buggs, Director of Equity & Diversity Engagement and Debbie Murphy, Upper School Director of Student Activities and Community Service.
Our time together will begin at 9 AM in Schenck Auditorium, where we will gather as a community to hear a guest speaker. Following that time together, there will be service projects held on and off campus that families can select. Transportation will be provided to off-campus sites. After working together in the morning, we will then gather together in the Wharton Lessin Dining Hall for a community luncheon sponsored by the D-E Parents’ Association.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Lower School students and families to connect with the broader D-E community and our surrounding neighbors.
