Multicultural Week and Student-Led Conferences
Hello! I just wanted to let you know that this week is Multicultural Week at BPS. We will be taking a closer look at several countries in Africa. Today we watched a video about village life in Zambia. (Here’s the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmH3U39mZ88) Over the course of the week, we will be learning about (and discussing) a variety of African cultures.
     Also, don’t forget to check your child’s message bag tonight. In it you will find a note about the upcoming student-led conferences.
