On November 30, 2018, a group of middle school students engaged their audience of middle school students, 5th graders and parents in a thoughtful ceremony. Students carefully crafted a presentation that involved reading of soldiers’ letters, a song by students, reenactment of the day of the Armistice, and piano pieces played by students. We all observed one minute of silence in remembrance of past generations, one hundred years ago.
Thank you to Mr. Prud’homme for spearheading the project and letting students express their awareness and emotions in their own ways. It created a special and profoundly meaningful moment in our busy school life to reflect together on past events and not forget history as to build a better present and future.
