| Eighth Graders Collaborate With the
Butterfly Project in Language Arts
Eighth graders at Hudson Bend Middle School showcased their creativity and their love of learning with the Butterfly Project, a colorful and poignant showcase of art pieces they created based on poetry they studied that commemorated children who passed in the Holocaust. All of the students’ butterflies are currently displayed in Hudson Bend’s sky bridge for faculty and visitors to view.
To prepare the eighth graders for the Butterfly Project, students learned about the events surrounding WWII with a Holocaust Webquest, digital timelines, QR codes, and historical allegories in children’s literature. Eighth graders also read Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl and explored an interactive online annex simulation before viewing the cities Anne Frank’s family visited through Google Earth.
The eighth graders’ butterflies may be viewed through the end of December.

Hudson Bend Shoe Drive Sept. 16-Nov. 5
NJHS will be collecting used shoes for Soles for Souls. Bring in all types of shoes, and drop them off in the marked collection bins in the upstairs neighborhood spaces. These shoe donations will be delivered to countries around the world to communities in need. All shoes are accepted in any condition: sneakers, boots, heels, sandals, and even flip flops. The grade that donates the most used shoes will earn a Go Time in the cafeteria with their devices one day in November! If you have any questions, please see Ms. O’Brien or Ms. McDermott.
