Students from South Grove Elementary School kicked off the month of February with an International Week dedicated to celebrating the diversity that represents their school.

Students were encouraged in the opening assembly to be open to the sights, sounds and tastes of the cultures around us. Each morning, they watched videos created by students and staff with a greeting and “Did You Know?” facts about various cultures. The South Grove PTA created a Heritage Museum with displays and exhibits representing different cultures. Classes visited the Museum during the week.

The week culminated with Culture Share sessions presented by fifth grade students. Over 50 student volunteers attended early morning work sessions and gave up their recess to develop presentations and hands-on activities that shared a culture from around the world. These presentations were shared with the younger grades throughout the day.
