Today we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who dedicated his life to fighting for human rights, racial equity, and justice for all people.

During the month of October, HJCS was approached by the Free Food Fridge of Albany and the Honest Weight Food Co-Op to redesign and re-paint the Free Food Fridge located at the corner of Watervliet Ave next to the Co-Op.
All 3rd grade scholars were given an opportunity to submit designs and THREE of our HJCS scholars had their artwork chosen! The three 3rd graders, Mofeoluwa Atoyebi, Aunri Douglas, and Mila Williams, had their designs painted on the Free Food Fridge by professional muralist Cara. M. Hanley at the Honest Weight Food Co-Op on Watervliet Ave.
The Honest Weight Food Co-Op and Free Food Fridge of Albany will be holding a celebratory event to recognize ALL third grade scholars who participated on Thursday, December 14th from 5:30-6:30.
