While most students enjoy the time off on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, students at the Rashi School in Newton are invited to come to school voluntarily on Jan. 21 to participate in service projects in honor of the civil rights leader.
From 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., students and their families will gather to at the Jewish day school to create cards and birthday boxes for children in local shelters; make scarves for people in need; and write letters to local troops in Iraq.
A discussion about King's legacy will also be incorporated into the day.
