May 9, 2024

On Monday, we held a special assembly to recognize Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day. As part of the assembly, students lit seven candles–six to represent the six million Jews who were victims of the Holocaust and one to remember those murdered and hostages still held by Hamas. As your family observes this time of Yom HaShoah, Yom Hazikaron, and celebrates Yom Ha'atzmaut, we ask that you remember the past, the present, and our hopes for peace in the future.
