…Never Forget

Dear HTS Community:

Last week, our middle school students (grades 5-8) were treated to a wonderful and educational assembly.  Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Holocaust survivor and author of Four Perfect Pebbles (purchase here) spoke about her childhood in Holland before WWII, her time in the notorious prison camp, Bergen-Belsen as well as her post-war emigration to America.  Our students were very well behaved throughout the assembly and many even had the opportunity to ask Mrs. Blumenthal Lazan questions after her presentation was over.  The entire assembly was recorded by HTS TV Studio personnel and is available here (password: library).

This event was made possible by a HTEF grant and planned by our fifth grade team of Mrs. Galdieri and Mrs. DeCotiis.  On behalf of the student body, please accept a giant thank you for making the event possible.  Consider taking a moment to ask your child about this special assembly.

Sincerely,
Alex Anemone
