FMS Celebrates Culture & Diversity Week

FMSFisher Middle School students celebrated the rich diversity and culture of Ewing the week of April 19th with Culture and Diversity Week. Throughout the week, students were exposed to information about different cultural celebrations around the world, words and phrases in other languages, and facts about the many cultures around Ewing and Mercer County. Student Council members put together a Virtual Cookbook, which featured recipes from Mr. Milecki, Mrs. Suseendran, Mrs. Canavan, Mr. Soto, the Abtouche family, the Lima-Flores family, and the Owusu-Mensah family. The Student Council also provided teachers with a full week's worth of "Do Nows" which quizzed students on celebrations such as Ramadan, the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival, Carnival, and more.

A few students also contributed language instruction videos for the whole school to enjoy: Sofia Latushka and her friend Lada - who tuned in virtually all the way from St. Petersburg - led a video in Russian; Amine Abtouche provided a video in Arabic; and Stephania Camblard taught a variety of phrases in Haitian Creole.
