World Holidays Celebrated at JFK’s Family Culture Night


English as a second language students from JFK recently gathered with their families and teachers for a Family Culture Night. Participating in “Holidays Around the World,” the ESL students visited different tables to learn more about international celebrations. Families sampled special treats associated with the various holidays, while creating crafts specific to each of the global celebrations.

“Our students and their families really enjoyed working together on crafts, playing holiday board games and learning about the different holidays that are celebrated around the world,” said Gina Palasciano, the district’s world languages curriculum associate.
