The Butterfly Project Teaches Students the Importance of Empathy

Forty sixth grade students at Sacred Heart Academy will host The Butterfly Project: Remembrance and Hope on April 20.

It’s an event that is a part of a national campaign that combines art and memorial. This project focusing on the students learning about the Holocaust with a particular emphasis on children. The event will showcase student-created memorials and culminate with the unveiling of a permanent memorial being placed at the school titled “The Butterfly Project.”
