Congratulations to our seven 8th grade leaders who were invited to attend the Illinois Holocaust Museum Student Leadership Program on February 15, 2018. Mrs. D. Johnson and Mrs. M. Quish nominated these students based on their outstanding contributions to this year’s Humanities class – which focuses on Child Labor, past and present. The guest speakers, Michel Chikwanine, former child soldier in the Congo, and Holocaust survivor Aaron Elster, inspired them to build their leadership skills, explore their roles as citizens, and develop a deeper awareness and understanding of the Holocaust, genocide, and other human rights issues. As a result of their participation in this inspiring day, these students designed an action plan and will now be leading and mentoring their fellow Humanities participants in grades 6-8, to produce Public Service Announcements promoting Fair Trade as a way to eliminate child labor worldwide.
