The Montessori School of Syracuse celebrated their annual Cultural Festival very recently. The festival has been happening for 16 years now and will continue to be something students look forward to for years to come. Each year a new continent is chosen to be the primary focus. This year’s was the Americas. On March 8th the school’s great room operated as a Cultural Museum, open to students and families! Families and students were “invited to wear clothing that represented their cultural heritage and to bring a cultural dish to share after the community celebration.” This is not only limited to one day a year though! Throughout the year, there are cultural artifacts and art examples on display in the classrooms and on the walls of the hallways.
The school takes pride in their cultural immersion. They believe that “by celebrating and exploring a different continent each year, and through cultural presentations by families and guests from around the world, students learn the importance of being a global citizen.”
