  • Summer Reading Boxes
    The students have been so excited to browse and choose books to read over the summer. Many of
    them are planning to trade with each other throughout the summer, so they get even more reading in.

  • Guest Speaker

    Dr. Gingold spoke with students about how his family survived in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II and the Holocaust including their eventual escape, after three attempts. His family was pursued by the Gestapo across Poland until they reached Siberia. Eventually, after the war, they were able to emigrate to the United States. Dr. Gingold spoke about some of the challenges of coming to a new country such as having to learn to read and write at age 15 and facing anti-semitism here. Dr. Gingold also talked about hate and indifference being very dangerous.
