Scenes from Immigration Day at Hopkins School

The 6th annual Immigration Day took place at Hopkins School on Wednesday, March 16. For the sixth year in a row, students learned what it was like to immigrate to America, by actually acting out the steps involved. After being assigned an identity and processed at Ellis Island, the new immigrants proceeded to the Great Hall for their medical exam. Once cleared, they took an oath to the newly adopted country.
