Have you ever wondered about the island of Fiji or the Republic of Bulgaria, or any other far-off destination and its culture? Learning about other places and people-- what makes us the same and what makes us different--that's the goal of an international studies project that has the students of Eastern Heights Middle School so engaged. The students selected a place from somewhere on the globe that they wanted to study and created projects to show of what they learned. The project will culminate at a spectacular International Festival at Eastern Heights Middle School on May 10, 2023, with live music, traditional foods of other countries and a walking tour of the finished work of the students. Community partners will be there, as well, with information for parents and many resources, including free clothing. Take a listen on Petey Podcast to Principals Dana Cerrito and Jake Keefe, and School Home Liaison Michelle Nimene, on what it took for the staff and students of Eastern Heights Middle School to pull off this exciting event!
