FOREST PARK – Students and robots built by the school’s robotics team will dance together at the Let Choice Ring rally at 7 Pillars Career Academy, which will be held at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 26th and 27th.
Students will also participate in a poetry slam and the school’s culinary club will provide sweet treats and a hot cocoa and tea station.
About 200 students, family members, faculty, and community members are expected to attend. Social distancing will be adhered to and the school is on top of health and wellness precautions.
This event is planned to coincide with National School Choice Week 2022, which will feature tens of thousands of school choice celebrations across all 50 states.
“During the month of January, 7 Pillars Career Academy along with people across the world, pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other great leaders for their stance on injustice and inequality,” said Sharon Daniel. “
Parents, students, and charter supporters alike still face injustice and inequality in education. They want freedom to choose another route for their education, so let it be.”
The event is organized by 7 Pillars Career Academy, a charter school in Forest Park. For more information, contact Sharon Daniel at (404) 500-1294 or [email protected].
National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on effective K-12 education options for children, focusing equally on traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and home education options.
Every January, participants plan tens of thousands of celebrations –– such as school fairs and open houses–– to raise awareness about school choice across all 50 states. School Choice Week also develops resources and guides to K-12 education for families.
As a not-for-profit effort, the Week is nonpolitical and nonpartisan and does not advocate for legislation. For more information visit schoolchoiceweek.com.
