As part of our study on Forced Migrations, our class will be attending a field trip to the Illinois Holocaust Museum this Friday, March 9. The school bus taking us to the museum needs to leave promptly at 8:45 am, so please be sure to help your child get to school on time (by 8:30) on Friday. We will not be able to wait for any late students.
Students should bring a bag lunch, which we’ll eat on the bus on the way back to school (no microwave access).
Our class will be participating in the Take A Stand tour; you can read about it on the museum website here. Of particular interest is the brand new Abe & Ida Cooper Survivor Stories Experience, which uses hologram technology for students to interact with survivors of the Holocaust.
As always, when the students participate in something that may include challenging and emotional content, we encourage you to engage in conversation with your child about the experience.
Let me know if you have any questions,
