and Civic Participation was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard – measured by the number of hours of service over a 12-month period or cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime. St. Andrew’s has been named as an approved certifying organization in charge of reviewing, approving, and verifying students’ volunteer hours, then finally nominating them for earned service awards. Congratulations to all our award recipients.

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Message Celebrated in Grades 1–12 St. Andrew’s students celebrated and reflected on the life and teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr. throughout the week of January 12–17. On Thursday, January 12, the Lower School held an assembly honoring King’s life and work where students participated through musical, poetic, and theatrical presentations in the spirit of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. On Tuesday, January 17, the Middle School Prejudice Awareness Peer Leadership Organization (PAPLO) gave a presentation in chapel about the ways in which Dr. King’s work continues to impact the lives of St. Andrew’s students today. Their “collaborative chapel talk” included the themes of courage, equality, hope, love, sacrifice, leadership, peace, and faith. Finally, on Monday, January 16, faculty, parents, and students from all three divisions, donned blue and white and carried the St. Andrew’s banner in the annual city-wide MLK march to the State Capitol along with approximately 15,000 other Austinites, to honor Dr. King’s legacy. 42 • St. Andrew’s Episcopal School • www.sasaustin.org
