The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.” On Monday, January 19th, Aspen Academy marched in the Martin Luther King Marade in downtown Denver. We marched alongside other members of our community and shared in Martin Luther King’s spirit of togetherness.
