Wow! It’s hard to believe we are over a month into the school year. Students have been busy with seminar and genius hour projects, Principles of Engineering interviews, reading lots of interesting topics in Independent Literature, getting to know each other, creating a social contract during team building time and participating in the homecoming festivities.
Here are some photos of the fun!
As part of the 4th quarter seminars students are studying the Holocaust. Last week, we had the privilege of having Jeffrey Gingold, author of “Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy”, sharing with us the story of a seven year old boy, Sam, Gingold’s father squeeze through the tunnels and trade goods in a Warsaw Ghetto to survive.
