Ellis Island Immigration Activity

Submitted by Carrie.pingel on Tue, 11/23/2021 - 11:20

History students got a taste of what it was like to arrive in the United States as an immigrant at the turn of the century. Chelsie and Chelsey had their students fill out forms, undergo medical examinations, legal inspections, and even test to determine their mental fitness before admittance into the country. The activity involved lots of waiting, paperwork, exams, more waiting, crowding, more forms to fill out, and then a ruling on their ability to make the US their home. Would you make the cut?

Members of the Landmark family joined together to honor US Veterans and remember their sacrifice. The students, staff, and faculty gathered at the front of the school on November 11th to learn from, and pay tribute to, those who have served our country. After the assembly, the group observed the retirement ceremony and disposal of a worn flag. A new flag was then raised on the flagpole. To veterans at Landmark past and present, thank you for your service!
