Our 9th graders experienced a very educational and meaningful field trip to the Levine Jewish Community Center Butterfly project. While there, they learned about the Holocaust through a workshop that teaches students how to recognize prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination. The goal of the workshop is to help students implement what they learned and help stop hateful behaviors they see in their daily lives.
Students also had the opportunity to paint ceramic butterflies. The butterflies represent the children that died during the Holocaust. It was a very meaningful exercise as it helped students understand the horrific impacts of the Holocaust.
