Middle School Yom HaShoah Commemoration
Middle School students honored the memory of those who had to endure the horrors of the Holocaust. 8th grade students presented images from their visual journals, reflecting on their studies of the Holocaust and their visit to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. 7th and 8th grade choir students evoked feelings and meaning through their beautiful songs, and the entire 8th grade chorally performed a haunting poem. We were privileged to hear the retelling of a survivor story from a local storyteller, and in addition, guest speakers throughout the day helpd each grade-level connect to a different person’s experiences.
