    Fall 2020 FAQs

    These times bring immense challenges, and those challenges are unique for each student, family, faculty member, school, community, and region. There is no ‘one size fits all’ strategy that works for every scenario in every location. Learning will be different. Campus will be different. There will be disruption. MCDS may need to close unexpectedly depending on local conditions and ordinances. No one knows with certainty what the fall will bring in terms of this pandemic.

    Model UN

    On Saturday, March 1 our Model UN team competed for the second year at the Miami Dade College competition. This year we had three resolutions passed in committee, and two of our delegations (China: Felipe Bautista and Dylan Meyers; Saudi Arabia: Isaac Brown and Miguel Escobar) won Honorable Mention. 

    The delegates in the following committees worked on and had their resolution passed:
    UNDP: Access to Clean Water and Sanitation China delegation: Felipe Bautista and Dylan Meyer
    UN Women: Empowering Rural Women: Saudi Arabia delegation: Zoe Terry and Jessica Levy
    UNICEF: Child Protection from violence, Exploitation and Abuse China delegation: Renan Ramos, Saudi Arabia: Hendrix Lee and Leyka Rojos.
    The two Honorable Mentions were Felipe Bautista and Kylan Meyer and Miguel Escobar and Isaac Brown (Saudi Arabia delegation to the General Assembly: Global Compact for Migration)
    Holocaust Education Day

    8th graders prepared for their day with Holocaust surviors with the study of Night (in English classes) as well as discussions in Advisory. Students also viewed a few documentaries related specifically to the experience of individuals in the Holocaust as well as one that shared the experience of survivors of the Rwandan genocide (connecting back to Wiesel’s message in Night “Never shall I forget…”). 
    Questions were developed in Advisory and Civics classes and were brought with by the students. After opening remarks on Wednesday morning, students broke into groups for more intimate discussions with the Holocaust survivors. 

    A special thank you to the following survivors who joined our 8th graders on Wednesday:

    Katalin Packard
    Irene Zisblatt
    Allen Hall
    Julius Eisenstein
    Sally Dauman
