Diversity Week

Diversity is an important topic to teach and celebrate. In our class alone, we have at least 6 different languages spoken, many different types of families and cultures, and of course, each child is unique in their appearance, preferences and abilities. The main teaching message in Kindergarten is that diversity in our classmates should be celebrated and accepted with kindness. It is a chance for them to describe themselves with pride and learn about how others may be similar or different to themselves, yet anyone can be a friend.







The week ahead: Feb. 27-Mar. 1

  • Tuesday, Feb. 27 – Diversity picnic and bannock roast at the park. If you wish to send a shared snack from your culture, please have it ready in a covered container and labeled if it contains dairy and gluten. No nuts, please.
