Daring David Multicultural Celebration

Daring David Multicultural Celebration


Cultural diversity is in full bloom! Melville Elementary School is celebrating Multicultural Month in May, and everyone is on board! In Mrs. Mitchell’s class, the students are playing a special name game and knowledge-sharing activity as they learn about the different countries and states represented by each person in the class. They pair up again with Mrs. Connelly’s class, and an impromptu Mexican hat dance emerges! They make maracas and even break open a piñata as they embrace Mexican culture. During a Drama Club meeting, the stage is set to capture the essence of Jamaica with reggae and calypso music. The students experience a different culture right on the stage!
