Family Diversity Fair

Mote's First Annual Family Diversity Fair is a HUGE Success!!

Over 100 families came together to celebrate diversity and many different cultures on Wednesday night, January 29th. Families enjoyed watching different dances, listening to diverse stories, participating in cultural gallery walks, and eating cultural favorites! We were entertained bya traditional Argentinian Tango and performances of traditional Mexican Dances. Mr. Bolden was a guest reader of the book Jabari Jumps and Ms. Cicala read Alma and How she Got Her Name in English and Spanish. Students and families prepared displays of their culure and cultures they wanted to learn about for our Cultural Gallery Walk. A dinner of fajitas, carnitas, rice, and beans was served by Taqueria Los Compadres. In addition, many families shared homemade treats from their culture. No one left hungry! Everyone had a great time and is looking forward to next year's event!
