Remembrance week begins on January 27th. This is the day that Auschwitz was liberated by Allied troops. To commemorate and learn more about the Holocaust, we would like to invite all 6th-grade families to join us at the Holocaust Museum on Saturday, January 25th at 10:00 am. 
 
Tickets are $15.00 for adults and children up to 18 are free. This is a great opportunity for parents to interact and learn alongside your child as you tour and explore the museum together. This is not a school-sponsored trip. We simply feel this would be a valuable learning experience for our students. We hope your family can join us, but this is not required.
 
Please complete this form if you are interested in attending so we can send more information.
