Liberty without learning is always in peril; learning without liberty is always in vain. ~ John F. Kennedy

Dear Families-
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy, Grades 5 & 6 viewed Part 1 of this History Channel documentary.  It is a riveting series of "primary documents" compiled to tell the story of President Kennedy's final hours and the aftermath of his assassination.  It's worth watching.

"The stories of past courage can . . . teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration, but they cannot supply courage itself.  For this, each man must look into his own soul." ~ J.F.K.
