Eighth Grade Places First in JEA Holocaust Remembrance Art and Writing Contest

On the morning of May 16, the eighth grade class was presented with a check from the Jewish Educational Alliance (JEA) as a reward for winning first place in the Holocaust Remembrance Art and Writing Contest. The winning art piece is a collaborative watercolor work inspired by the Terezin Ghetto, in which each student chose an image, quote, or map that memorializes the Holocaust, and created individual scenes that were assembled to model "Exercise — color theory" by Hana Lustigová (1931–44), May 30, 1944.

Boone Wiesner was also recognized for placing in the writing contest. Congratulations, Hornets!!
