Yesterday, the Grade 2 classes enjoyed the annual Cultural Circuit. In Ms. Meyer’s class, students learned about Buddha’s Birthday and the importance of meditation. Ms. Narvaez spoke to the Grade 2 children about Diwali, The Festival of Lights. The children made diyas to share with their families.
When the students visited Mrs. Naqvi, she shared wonderful stories of Ramadan and Eid. They tasted some delicious pitas and hummus and made a stained glass mosque. On the final stop of the circuit, Mme. Wertman was very excited to share her family’s Hanukkah traditions. She sang Hanukkah songs, read the students a story, showed them her family’s menorah, and taught the classes how to play the dreidel game.
