News & Announcements


We are planning a trip to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, but we can use your assistance. We are raising money for this great project that will send 90 students to Washington where students will visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum at the halfway point of an 8-week unit on the Holocaust and World War II. Before visiting the museum, students will have read Night by Elie Wiesel and written a Literary analysis, focusing on themes of morality, survival, trauma, and identity.
We appreciate any assistance or sharing with your networks to help our students have this experience.
