Celebrating Cultural Differences


Second-grade students at Harley Avenue Primary School recently participated in a cultural celebration to recognize their heritage. Students were required to research their background and create projects based on their findings. While some students interviewed family members, others created family trees to show their fellow students.
On the days of the celebrations, students arrived at school dressed in T-shirts that pictured their flags of heritage. Harley parents also donated their time by cooking food from around the world to share with the students. From matzah balls and goulash, to shepherd’s pie and beef empanadas, the second-grade students were exposed to foods that celebrate a variety of cultures.
According to second-grade teacher Chris Washouski, “The kids worked very hard on their projects and we are very proud of them.”
