Four students proudly show the trophies they made during the Cultural Fair, which took place at the Campus Center on Feb. 8. These students, along with many others, also recieved scholastic books to take home while the adults served samples of authentic dishes from around the world. Students created colorful displays with unique poetry, portraying the likeness and differences in their relationship with other classmates and describing themselves as individuals.
Next, each student’s native heritage is also represented by a crafted puppet. The puppets and poetry were put together on display, unifying classmates through their cultural backgrounds. “We are the same” is written on one student-crafted display. Mrs. Cobb’s second grade class at Madison Elementary made the puppets while learning the many ways of cultural expression. Buchanan Kindergarten Center’s display, called “Small Hands Change the World,” shows each student’s name on a paper hand print. Where adults may find difficulty growing accustomed to new and different cultures within the community, young children show great ease and acceptance of one another, an attitude helping to create positivity and overall competence throughout the diverse city of Huron.For the complete article see the 02-11-2014 issue.
