8th grade Honors English and Advanced English 8 students from both schools collaborated in Project S.O.S. Symbols Of the Souls. This project consisted of students planning, organizing, collecting, sorting, and counting shoes, with each shoe representing a Holocaust victim. This project was inspired by Alan Moraweic, the son of Holocaust survivor and teacher in Colorado who started the Holocaust Shoe Project. The students video conferenced with him and each other via Google Hangout on May 24th to learn his father's story. Our initial goal was to collect 550 shoes between both schools.
