The Heritage Project

The world is full of amazing people and places. At Brill, we want our students to learn about their ancestry and celebrate diversity. For this project, you will choose an idea from the list below that focuses on your ancestors’ country of origin or the one you connect with the most. Once you have gathered the information, choose one display option for the upcoming parade.


Deadlines:

You need to complete and submit your project on, or before, March 20th.

Display Options (bring to school):

➢ heritage poster

➢ heritage in a box (shoebox or other)

➢ heritage float (for the parade)

➢ heritage mobile

➢ create a flag from your country (be creative with your materials)

➢ heritage collage

➢ heritage paper doll

➢ dress up in traditional dress

➢ bring a sample of the food to display (not for student consumption due to allergies)



Ideas to gather information (at home):

• read a book

• eat and/or cook the food

• watch a movie/TV show/documentary

• perform a dance

• complete a jigsaw puzzle (2D or 3D)

• play a sport/try a hobby

• write and answer four trivia questions about a region

• interview someone from your country

• go to a museum, festival, or exhibit

• visited a foreign country

• create your own experience


The Big Reveal:

The students will display their creations during our Heritage Parade on March 27th at 9:00 A.M.

Each student will carry their project in the parade to show the school how much they learned

about their heritage. Parents are encouraged to attend.

Counselor Corner

Spring is almost here and the last quarter of the school year is upon us already! The end of the year can be a difficult time to continue pushing through the rigor and responsibility of successful academics. However, there are ways for students to stay on top of their game and reach their goals without additional stressors. Here are some tips for school success.

Getting and staying organized:

-Have a well lit and quiet place to study

-Remove or turn off devices that are distracting

-Write down important dates each week (quizzes, tests, reviews, etc.)

-Have your supplies with you for each class

-Schedule a time each day for reviewing classwork

-Involve a parent or guardian when reading and studying

Preparing for assessments:

-Complete your classwork

-Ask your teacher questions

-Buddy study with a friend

-Set academic goals

-Review classwork and notes daily

-Use teacher review guides and notes when available

These are just a few of the many tips out there that can help a student achieve their goals for academic success. Please continue to remember the 3 R’s…Be RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and READY to learn! Have a great Spring everyone!
