Hey Thunderbird Families:
We are very excited to share with you that we will be celebrating our schools cultural diversity on June 19th. Our intention is to promote a greater awareness and appreciation among our students and staff for the different cultures represented in our community. In turn, we are optimistic that this will promote a greater respect for cultural differences.
This letter is to inform you about what will be happening at our school. On June 19th we will be celebrating Multicultural Day.
For grades 4-8 there will be a special Black History presentation at 9:30 in the gym by Down to Earth Education: http://www.downtoeartheducation.ca/about-us/. This will be an interactive presentation with artifacts that students will have the opportunity to explore during the presentation. Check out the link to the website above. There will be a door decorating contest for all classes celebrating the amazing countries that our community represents. Finally, everyone is welcome to come to school wearing traditional cultural clothes or colours on June 19th. What a great way to celebrate the many faces that make up our St. Daniel Community!
The Thunderbird Student Diversity Team
