Thursday: Holocaust Projects, Kindergarten And Fast Talk
Check out these things to keep in mind today:
Holocaust projects - The Museum of Work and Culture has been displaying the Holocaust projects of Mt. St. Charles students all month, but tonight, 6 to 9 p.m., is Parents’ Night, an evening for students to showcase their projects to family and friends. They'll also hear the daughter of two Holocaust survivors share her parents’ experiences. These projects are dubbed “suitcase biographies” because the students create them out of luggage filled with items that tell the story of the person they have researched.
Kindergarten orientation - Tonight at 5:30 p.m., kindergarten orientation gets a reboot at Pothier Elementary School. The evening begins with registration and light refreshments. At 6:30 p.m., with passport in hand, children and families will “travel” to stations where they will participate in activities based on the Rhode Island Early Learning Standards.
Circus - Picadilly Circus is in town. Motorcycles defy gravity, showgirls on stilts tower above the audience and giant wheels of death rotate at breathtaking speeds.
Cirrus - Partly cloudy and a high of 73. It's one of the twelve or so days of this kind of weather you spend the rest of the year waiting for. Take a walk at lunch and enjoy it.
Fast talk - On this day in 1988, John Moschitta set the record for fast talking: 586 words per minute, according to brainyhistory.com
