Lore Celebrates Its Diversity

Black Excellence

Someone once said, "The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people." With this in mind, the staff at Lore Elementary School has worked to inspire and educate students about people and celebrations from different cultures. Earlier this year, students learned about the celebration of Diwali, the Festival of Lights. Throughout the month of February, students learned about Black and African American historians, scientists, and heroes, through the use of our Periodic Table of Black Excellence. Thanks to a grant sponsored by Young Audiences, students also engaged in a virtual assembly called “A Seat for Rosa”, and are looking forward to virtual assemblies about Irish, Indian, American, and Spanish-speaking cultures in the coming months.
