As part of their summer learning experience, students enrolled in Bilingual/English as a Second Language classes at Mission West Elementary School took part in a multicultural festival to recognize and celebrate the diverse population represented in the summer program.

Students in 21 classrooms joined school staff and parents in the celebration that featured cultural artifacts and exhibits, spirited song and dance performances, and cultural meals prepared by parents and staff members representing countries from around the world. Participants also wore traditional garments representing their native land.

“The multicultural festival was a rewarding experience for everyone involved,” said Jennifer Spears, Summer School Principal at Mission West Elementary School. “Our students, staff and parents were eager to share various aspects of their cultures and learn about others as well. It was an exciting summer activity for us.”
