Head Of Middle School Interviewed By Local News About Importance Of Museums

Head of Middle School Chuck Hagy touted the important role museums play in the lives of both teachers and students during a recent interview with local news station WPTV. Hagy was interviewed about the way local museums are helping teachers provide cultural experiences for their students amid the pandemic.

The Flagler Museum, Henry Flagler’s gilded age estate in Palm Beach, Florida, is offering free entry to the museum and educational resources starting October 21 as part of Teacher Appreciation Week. 

“It’s very meaningful to teachers all over the area,” Hagy told WPTV. “I think it can make all the difference in the world to a child who is looking for some way to engage with his community,” he said. “Museums are so important because they bring history to life.”
