The Cavalier Connection Students hosted their buddies from Wingate Elementary this morning. Cuthbertson Middle School Cavalier Connection has partnered with either Marshville Elementay or Wingate Elementary for 10 years.

In April, sixth grade students traveled to the Levine Jewish Community Center in Charlotte to take part in The Butterfly Project. The Butterfly Project was created to remember the past, act responsibly in the present, and promote a more peaceful future. This project teaches the lessons of the Holocaust and what can happen when prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination are allowed to flourish. The ultimate goal is to help students understand how their role in society can promote acceptance and understanding. Each butterfly created was in memory of one of the 1.5 million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. No names are repeated. Since 2008, over 36,000 butterflies have been created at the Levine Jewish Community Center. While creating the butterflies, each child’s name was spoken out loud. It’s possible that this name had not been said since the child was alive. The butterflies that were created are on display in the display case at the front of the school. The teachers and students worked very hard on this project and it has deep meaning that will stay with students for a lifetime.
In February, Ms. Secker’s 7th grade ELA students at CMS began reading the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. During that time, students learned about the water crisis that is still happening in South Sudan, as well as the horrific experiences that the Lost Boys went through during the late 1980’s and into the early 2000’s. One student, John Bagdasarian, was particularly touched by the true story of Salva Dut, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and his story of survival.
