    Diverse traditions and religions among the students of UMAMS creates originality and uniqueness in our school. For many years, the middle school had been brainstorming ways for all cultures to be recognized.

     

    The middle school started something new.  An anonymous survey was taken and they observed the many cultures that existed in our school that many students wanted to learn more about and/or belong to.  The ending product was THE CELEBRATION SQUARE, located a few steps to the right of the library entrance.

     

    Every few months this school year, there will be different cultures shown in the showcase.  This month, September, the theme is Judaism. In the square, you can find loads of artifacts from that culture and writing pieces such as books and articles.  

     

    If you would be interested in helping with creating the Celebration Square display, please come to C120 and sign up for one of the cultures.  Be sure to pay a visit to the Celebration Square in the upcoming days!
