Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park

A 5th Grade Class Visit

 

In early October, we heard about an amazing 5th grade class from Park Slope Brooklyn. Their teacher, Jane Cyphers, teaches lessons on the Roosevelt presidency and the Four Freedoms speech. Each student then responds in a short essay. This year we were eager to hear their thoughts!

Mrs. Cyphers shared their essays and we were so impressed by each student's words. (We even invited one of the students to attend the October Dedication, find the story here.) This week, we invited the class the the Memorial.

 

They climbed the monumental stairs, took photographs in front of the bust and spent time in the Room. They even bumped into Gina Pollara, Executive Director, who explained to them the Louis Kahn design and the history of the Jo Davidson bronze bust.

We're going to invite them to come again in the Spring.
