8th Grade HeLa Parent-Student Book Chat


Monday night saw an amazing KSMS experience – students and parents from the 8th grade participated in an inter-disciplinary book chat evening, discussing The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, from three curricular lenses: literature/language arts, science, and Rabbinics/ethics. We were so pleased to be joined by many members of Henrietta Lacks’ family as our students and parents debated and discussed the many issues that are interwoven in the story. Thank you to all for a wonderful evening!
