Students and staff at Garcia Middle School recently celebrated the school’s diverse population by holding its first-ever Cultural Day. Students and staff dressed in festive attire from their native countries and participated in a parade around the track during their PE classes.
The event was sponsored by the school’s International Club, which was formed this year to celebrate and respect campus diversity and increase multicultural awareness. Staff sponsors of the club include Shweta Khade and Seema Vohra.
