(PHOTOS) Alice Smith Celebrates Diversity

Monday's assembly kicked off a week that culminates with Thursday's International Festival.

students kicked off a week celebrating the school’s diverse cultural heritage with a musical assembly Monday morning.

Students sang songs from around their world, recited a Martin Luther King Jr. speech, watched King’s “I Have a Dream” speech from the 1963 March on Washington and shared their own dreams.

“Today’s assembly is about you and all of us as a community,” Principal Jody De St. Hubert said. “This is my favorite assembly of the year.”

The week’s diversity celebration culminates Thursday with the Alice Smith International Festival. At 3 p.m., students will parade through school representing their ethnic culture. There will also be a potluck dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.—plus a Book Fair, Fair Trade Market and International Fashion Show.
