Mader Congratulations to Mrs. Mader, 7th grade Humanities and 7th/8th grade Social Justice teacher. Mrs. Mader was selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend the Arthur & Rochelle Belfer Conference at the United Stated Holocaust Museum in Washington, D. C. this July. Mrs. Mader will have the opportunity to work hand-to-hand with museum staff, historians, and expert educators to become a teacher leader in Holocaust education. The scholarship program offered through the U.S. Holocaust Museum is highly competitive and only a limited number of scholarships are granted nation wide. This is a huge honor for Mrs. Mader and for our school!
