Jimmy Chapman’s World War II Memorabilia Collection at DGH on Remembrance Day

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH school community, we are excited to announce that Jimmy Chapman is bringing his extensive collection of World War II items to our school on November 11th.  Jimmy Chapman, you likely know, is the breakdancer extraordinaire who has energized our students about dance in the past several years.  What you may not know is that he is a HUGE history buff with an even bigger interest in World War memorabilia.  While we have not had his collection and presentation at DGH before, we know schools who have and they all wonderful things to say about it.

 

Jimmy has enough items to fill many tables!  The tables will be setup in our gym and students will have the opportunity to view the items; some of the items can actually be handled by students.  This is a truly unique opportunity.  History will come alive as students touch items that are more than 70 years old.  Each division will have the opportunity to go to the gym and view these items during one of our blocks.  Jimmy also provides a short presentation for students, tailored to their age groups.

 

Thank you, Jimmy Chapman, for offering our students this outstanding learning opportunity.
