Each year we celebrate the unique and diverse student body we have at Stinson Elementary. The WHOLE MONTH of February becomes a fun learning opportunity for ALL of our students to share their languages, cultures, celebrations and traditions with each other. Activities include:

 

Weekly Multicultural News – Fun facts about Stinson’s diversity in our PTA e-newsletter.

 

Daily Kids Morning Announcements – Kids from all grades and backgrounds can sign up to be on the morning announcements. Students say 1-2 sentences in their native language, talk about their heritage, or a place that they’ve traveled or studied. A multicultural winner of the day will be awarded! Sign up outside the ESL classroom (#405)

 

Multicultural Clothing & Souvenir FridaysKids can wear favorite or traditional clothing from their country of choice each Friday in February.
