Alden Terrace School students celebrated countries and cultures around the world during International Day on May 21.

Each grade-level was assigned a different country to research its culture, currency, cuisine and more, with many locations coinciding with their in-class curriculum. Pre-K students had Japan, kindergarteners had the United States, first graders had Italy, second graders had Kenya, third graders had Brazil, fourth graders had the Netherlands, fifth graders had Mexico, sixth graders had Turkey and ABA students had Egypt.

The students collaborated on hallway and classroom displays, inviting families in to view projects and presentations.

As part of International Day, the entire school community also collaborated on a “Let the World Be Your Bookmark” bulletin display. Faculty, students, custodians, cafeteria staff and families shared key facts and details about their native countries and traditions. This project helped to promote inclusivity and community.

Alden Terrace School hosted a ribbon cutting for its brand-new Positive Links Unifying Fence Project on April 17. On the school’s chain-link fence by the bus yard, it now says “Alden Excellence” with two paw prints in the school’s colors of blue and white.

The Building Advisory Committee created the idea for the project to link members of Student Council with their peers in fifth grade and promote positive role models. Student Council, the fifth graders and the SEL team collaborated to bring the vision to life, working together to spell out “Alden Excellence” with the provided blue and white cups. A member of the Building Advisory Committee met with the students to go over the dimensions and layout.

This multi-phase collaboration project has been underway since September. It culminated with the ribbon cutting ceremony, and parents were invited to participate in adding cups to finish the design. This beautifying project unified the school community and inspired positive “links” between students.
