The World in Our Backyard
The Kindergarten classes of New Salem Elementary enjoyed a day of global celebration on February 16, 2011. The highlighted country for this celebration was Mexico.
The program hosted by â€œWorld in our Backyardâ€ included numerous Mexican artifacts, pictures, and information. The children learned the Mexican hat dance and dressed in ponchos and sombreros as they danced to the music.
The presentation was followed by an event with parent volunteers where the students made ponchos and sombreros to take home.
