The 8th graders just wrapped up their Holocaust projects that culminated with speeches. They learned how to do primary source research, narrative writing, and citing work in their social studies and literacy classes with Mr. Rude and Mrs. ten Hoeve. Here's a sampling of some of the speeches. https://sites.google.com/a/new-hampton.k12.ia.us/rude/2022-holocaust-speeches

Thank you to our judges from the community: Jennifer Bouillon (from the bakery Sweets by Keke), Julie Havel (the owner of the Blue Iris), and Liz Zweibohmer (New Horizons Chamber Office). You were all marvelous as cake judges! Each student had a representative that spoke for their group and explained how they made their cakes and answered the judges questions. Here is a picture of one of our students, Whitnee. The cakes were judged with a rubric on: Wow Factor, Taste, Frosting, Decorations, and Overall Unique Design.
