To celebrate its students’ various cultures, Covert Avenue School hosted the annual Cultural Diversity Day on Jan. 19.
During the school day, students were encouraged to dress in outfits that represented their heritage. Students in grades K-2 marched in a hallway parade, displaying their outfits and artwork to their peers.
Then, after school, staff and families were treated to multiple performances and presentations by students. The celebration opened with former student Leiah Guirand, who shared cultural fun facts and a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Among the performances were the Drama Club’s rendition of “We’re All in This Together,” traditional Indian dances, the Honduras “Punta” dance, a Latin dance, third and fourth graders singing “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” and fifth and sixth grader singing “Music Changes the World.”
Cultural Diversity Night concluded with a Cultural Fashion Show that displayed students in outfits from China, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, Italy, Pakistan, Peru and more.
