All Saints' Day School celebrates diversity

As part of the International Week Festival at All Saints' Day School, the middle school hosted a panel discussion last week about the cultural similarities and differences immigrants experience when they come to the United States.

The panel was composed of nine All Saints' Parents and teachers from Ecuador, England, Japan, Trinidad, Uganda, Tunisia, Czech Republic, Germany, and Colombia. The students had great questions about cultural differences, how the moving to the USA affected family life, what people  missed most and more.

This is just one of many events that took place at the Episcopalian, private school in Carmel during the biennial celebration of international diversity.

Parents of students helped celebrate this event and presented their ancestors’ home countries through music, dance, slideshows, artifacts and food, reports Kristin Templeman, the school's communications director.

And it was great fun, she said. Next time we won't miss it!
