End of the School Year Activities

Jason took his first year of guitar this year.

He bought the guitar with his own money.

I'm very proud of him. He has done very well with it.

It was a great program. They played a lot of fun songs.
I hope he keeps it up. It will be a great hobby for him.

Cassie 6th grade play turned out really good.

One of the teachers wrote a play about the Kansas girls in 1999 that did a school project and found out about a women in Poland named Irena Sendler who saved Jewish children during the war.

Irena would go to the Jewish families in the Warsaw ghetto and ask them to trust her and let her take their children to safety until the end of the war.

She kept the real names of the children and their parents names in a jar buried under a tree.

The Kansas girls wrote a play "Life in a Jar" which became very popular and played over and over again.

Irena was captured and torched but never gave up the secrets of the Jewish children she helped. Because of the Kansas girls Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Cassie played a member of the Zogota (the counsel to aid Jews)

They helped get the children out and into safety.

Cassie and her class did a very good job.
