Antioch Named Global Partners School
On August 20th, Antioch Elementary was recognized at the World View Partnership Workshop as being a school of â€œGlobal Partnersâ€. This distinction was given to Antioch because of the high value we place on being globally aware and integrating diversity issues in our classrooms. Last year all of the grade levels were assigned a continent from which each class chose a country. Students learned about the geography and culture of their country throughout the year. As we gear up for the new school year, there will be a continued focus on educating our students to be globally aware citizens on an even deeper level. Teachers will be pulling in technology and community members to help raise awareness for our students as well as themselves. It is our hope that next summer at the World View Partnership Workshop that Antioch Elementary will receive top honors as being a UCPS International School.
