West End Elementary scholars show off their cultural roots


The eclectic array of cultural backgrounds present at West End Elementary School was on full display as students showed off their carefully curated mini museums.

Cultures of countries from around the globe were represented in students’ displays made up of various artifacts and items. At home, students assembled a wide variety of objects that were passed down through family generations, which represented their cultural roots. The cultural displays were presented inside decorated boxes sporting the flags and colors of their countries. Students also prepared information about their cultural background to be shared with visitors.
