Workman to Host "Celebration of Diversity"

 

Workman Elementary School will be hosting its “Celebration of Diversity” on Friday, March 6th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event, hosted by the PTO, will feature an evening full of fun and learning as Workman students explore and gain experiences with a wide range of cultures. The first hour will feature performances from different cultures and countries performed by Workman students, while the second hour is reserved for the “World Tour,” during which 13 different countries will be represented in rooms around the school -- with the displays produced by Workman parents as well as the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park’s Diversity Council and Asian Pacific American Club. During this, attending students will be given passports to visit different countries and will earn prizes as they collect stamps after visiting the rooms and answering a question based on each room’s content. 

 

This is a quick reminder from Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. East, West, Pioneer and Discovery middle schools will be hosting open houses this Monday night, March 2. If your current 6th or 7th grader will be attending a different middle school next year due to boundary changes, please drop by your new school between 7 and 8 PM to get acquainted. There will be a meet and greet for students and parents attending the new middle school on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 from 7-8 p.m. at Discovery Middle School.

We Dont Want Them Exhibit Arrives at Salem High School

 

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, together with the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion (MRDI) and the Beloved Community, are proud to present We Dont Want Them at Salem High School from Monday, March 2 through Thursday, April 2, 2015.  We Dont Want Them tells the compelling story of Metro-Detroit’s housing history through a racial lens. A walk through the exhibit will open the viewer up to personal accounts -- using historic documents, photographs, and personal narratives -- of the formation, challenges, and eventual destruction of communities that once stood within our local area.

History Comes to Life

During the mid-winter break, 150-plus eighth-grade students and 16 chaperones from West Middle School headed to the nation's capitol for a three-day trip. Students were engaged in our nation's history as the eighth-grade U.S. History curriculum came to life during visits to the National Archives, several of the the Smithsonian Museums, the White House, the Capital Building and the seemingly endless monuments and memorials that dot Washington D.C.
