Hello parents of 6th graders.On Thursday the 16th, our students will go through Ellis Island (located for this occasion in our small Gym).
Students should come dressed-up to play their part:
Boys can wear dark pants, preferably dark shoes, white shirt, a dark suit jacket or a vest, and mostly a hat / cap. Girls can wear long skirts and a white blouse, shawls or scarves. Hair can be braided or in a bun. Anything that will remind late 1800's or early 1900's.
Don't forget to bring a piece of luggage: a big basket, a very old leather looking suitcase, a large bag made of cloth, or just a small blanket rolled-up and held with ropes or belts.
We will do the activity during 1st or 2nd period to be with the other 6th graders. Students can dress-up at school + leave their luggage in my room as they come to school.
Thank you to all who volunteered to make this fun activity possible.
