Eighth graders at Memorial visited the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education at Rockland Community College for a day of learning and reflection. A special thank you to Mr. Khoudja for organizing such a wonderful experience, and Ms. Lipke for hosting our students and providing a personalized tour of the museum. Students also participated in an outstanding Moral Courage workshop, led by Ms. Suss, which challenged our students to ask themselves, "What would you do?" and to "Become a Truth Seeker". We look forward to returning again next week with another group of Memorial 8th grade students.
