The district’s students and staff recently celebrated National Foreign Language Week through a variety of culture-themed activities.

During the celebration, students participated in games, trivia contests, scavenger hunts, crafts and more all in an effort to enhance their understating of the world’s multiple languages. 

Students in English as a New Language classes at Babylon Elementary School learned about other countries and spoke to their fellow students about their own heritage. Additionally, they created flags from their native country or those which were highlighted during the week.

Students at Babylon Memorial Grade School utilized globes to locate countries where Spanish and French are spoken, amongst other romance languages. 

To further their appreciation for different world languages, students at Babylon-Junior Senior High School listened to music in other languages and enjoyed foods from other cultures during the “International Dessert Buffet” held within their lunch periods.
