Same, Same Different Cultural Fair

Hillcrest Elementary School

Our school Diversity Team will be hosting an event this May! In order to foster an appreciation of the diversity within our school community, we are eager for families to work on a tri-fold board to represent your family’s cultural traditions. After determining a country your ancestors lived in before coming to America, use the Google link below to sign up for a spot in our event.

When: Monday, May 11, 9:30 am-1pm

Where: Hillcrest Gymnasium

WHAT: STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILY WILL WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE A TRI-FOLD BOARD ABOUT THEIR CULTURAL BACKGROUND.

EACH STUDENT WILL RECEIVE A PASSPORT THAT WILL BE STAMPED AS THEY VISIT EACH STATION.

WHO: Each classroom will be able to sign up to visit the Cultural Fair to see how we are the same but different. This concept was taken from a book added to each classroom's multicultural library this year.
