Heritage Night

5th grade student Heritage Night projects line the hallway

On Thursday, February 27th, 2014, Shiloh welcomed the community of Monroe to their first ever Heritage Night. Fifth graders put together a binder and display board and showcased them for all to see. For more than 6 weeks fifth graders worked their hardest in hopes of astonishing people with their heritage. The fifth graders at Shiloh represent more than 25 unique countries. Each extraordinary display board included facts, pictures, and other fascinating components. The binders consisted of an interview, biography, an oral history, an authentic recipe, flags, traditions, a family tree, a poem, country information, and a bibliography. “All of the hard work paid off by everyone’s excitement to see the projects, “ said Nicholas Catapano. The fifth graders were proud to show off their work for two hours to several staff members, as well as family and friends. Austin Brown added, “Everyone’s project was superb!” If you were unable to attend, look for this new tradition next year!
