Seventh Grade Tour at the Museum of Tolerance - Date TBA
During the 7th grade it is critical students learn the importance of healing
friendships through forgiveness and understanding. During their 6th grade
year, we have paid special attention to helping students build healthy
relationships, learning how to give of themselves to others outside of
their immediate family. It is a reality that over the course of a year
some friendships will be bruised and even broken. Part of growing up includes
learning how to repair relationships. This is the focus of this unique
'mini' retreat for our 7th grade class. The Museum of Tolerance
provides a powerful context for students to witness and understand the
tragic consequences when selfishness, ignorance, and hatred infect the
way we view and treat one another.
The 7th-grade class will be joining their teachers for a 'mini'
retreat to The Museum of Tolerance on Date TBA. It is expected that all
students, with parent permission, will be attending the day away. Each
student should plan on bringing their own sack lunch. VCS uniform standards
inform what students should wear. The tour will happen during the normal
school day, beginning at 8:00 am, and will conclude at VCS by 2:30 pm.
We will travel as a group to the museum by VCS school bus. Our teachers
will be spending time in class, prior to the trip, helping students do
the necessary preparation to benefit fully from their experience at the
museum. If you wish, you may learn more about the
Museum of Tolerance.
Every student will need a parent to fill out, sign, and turn in a parent
permission slip, in order to participate on the trip. All forms need to
be turned into the Middle School office as soon as possible, but no later
than Date TBA.
