Celebrating International Children’s Day

International Children's DayEvergreen’s International Children’s Day is coming!

It’s an annual highlight:  each year we invite parents to share their international experiences with our children in 20-minute classroom presentations.  Presenters can bring artifacts, share personal experiences, picture books, photographs, maps, music or even a special food with students.

International Children’s Day is an important way we celebrate the diversity in our community.  This year we will wrap up the event with an assembly in the gym.  Ms. Garry has prepared a song for the whole school to sing together. Then we will close with a performance by an African drumming troupe.

Central to Evergreen’s mission and identity is respect for the worth and dignity of every person.  It directly follows, therefore, that Evergreen is committed to the ideals of equity and diversity in all aspects of our program and community.  We seek to be a diverse community of many voices and experiences.

Our global education curriculum and our commitment to equity seek to provide sufficient perspective on the diversity of human experience so that students come to appreciate the complexity and interconnectedness of the world around us.
