On Wednesday, November 30, eighth graders gathered in the Media Room to hear from George Elbaum, a survivor of the Nazi's Invasion of Poland who eventually made it out of the Warsaw Ghetto thanks to his mother's tireless work.
"Hello, neighbors! I like all my neighbors, especially those who like...ice cream!" The Media Room becomes a frenzy of activity as all the students in the room who identify with that statement leave their seats and attempt to find an empty one, in a new spin on musical chairs.
