Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Wheeler Avenue Elementary School recently hosted a Multicultural Night, inviting students to explore the different cultures surrounding them. During the event, students from South High School’s Cultural Society performed traditional dances from around the world. In addition, families of different ethnic backgrounds shared food from their cultures with each other.
Multicultural Night was held as part of the District’s initiative to encourage acceptance and understanding across the student body. The event gave students the opportunity to come together while also learning more about the backgrounds of their friends and peers.
