It’s a Small World After All

Emerson Elementary held a very successful and engaging Culture Day on Friday, March 11. Besides student artwork and lots of food and celebration, students had the opportunity to learn from and interact with people who have first-hand knowledge of a variety of countries and cultures. Emerson staff did a tremendous job of organizing the day and hosting the honored guests. Students got to learn about the following:

Kenyan Traditions: First Born Child, Josie Shaw
Celebrating Chinese New Year, Phoebe Liang
Musical Tour of Mexico, R.J. Hernandez
Welcome to Russia, Jen Piffer
Irish Storytelling, Maureen Korte

Students had an opportunity to ask questions, play games, and learn about places far away. Thank you to the Emerson staff and all of the presenters for giving Emerson students this opportunity!
