Celebrating Diversity at Babylon Elementary

Babylon Elementary is celebrating diversity throughout the month of January. Activities during the month included a visit by photojournalist and world traveler Mike Harrold, a Unique Day where students expressed their creativity and pajama day. Students throughout the school have also participated in different writing assignments tied into the theme.

During the last week of January, parent volunteers visited the elementary school to read the morning announcements in different languages. In the afternoon, Junior-Senior High School students read portions of “Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?” by Carol McCloud over the public announcement system. Starting with Spanish on Monday, the foreign language students also read in French, Turkish, Korean and finished the week with American Sign Language, which was videotaped to play for students.
