ELLIS ISLAND SIMULATION

In the weeks to come, students will be learning about the reasons people immigrated to the United States at the turn of the century. On Thursday, 11/9 students will take part in an Ellis Island Simulation from 11:15-12:45. In order to do this, we need parent involvement. If you are able to assist, please sign up using the link below. We truly appreciate your help, and ask that you arrive at 10:30 so that Mrs. Schirmer and I can train you.
