Kent Place Primary School Students Celebrate Their Heritage

Summit, NJ (November 22, 2013) – On Thursday, November 21 the Kent Place first grade students gathered in Hauser Hall with their families to celebrate heritage, culture and diversity.

The Heritage Festival is an annual event at Kent Place and represents the culmination of the learning unit “Our Heritage,” where students are encouraged to connect with their families to discover their own unique history.

“In the classroom, students learn about themselves and each other during October and November,” stated Edee Zabriskie, First Grade teacher. “After doing a family background information paper, each student shares information about her heritage, we locate countries on our class globe and we discuss some special traditions and foods that a family might share.”

The festivities began with the formation of a sharing circle. Students and their parents sat holding a picture of the flag whose nation they represented. Each girl had the opportunity to stand up and present an element of her family’s culture.

Some of the countries represented in this year’s class were: the United States, Canada, India, Puerto Rico, China, Italy, Ukraine, Greece and Israel.

The vibrant and rich display of heritage continued with an international tasting festival. Each family brought a favorite traditional food to add to the wide array of culinary treats.

In Kent Place’s Primary School, multicultural concepts are woven into the curricula using a variety of games, media, technology and activities. Students learn through dance, playing games from around the world, singing songs in different languages, cooking and eating different ethnic foods and acting out authentic stories. This approach encourages students to learn actively and engage in a variety of rich resources. For more information please visitwww.kentplace.org/about/diversity.
