This event brings together students, families, and teachers to celebrate cultural diversity at Barberton City Schools. We will have food and activities for all to enjoy!
Stories will also be shared about how our resilient students and featured speakers immigrated to America to achieve the American Dream. This year, Mr. Kaser’s STEM team will be featuring a virtual reality demo of Google Earth – which is an amazing opportunity to experience countries across the world without having to leave Barberton! I was fortunate to see my family’s home in a small village of Lebanon and it made my eyes water… it was a really neat experience! We will also have cooking and language lessons, and other great cultural activities for you to experience a day in our multilingual students’ lives.
