Third through fifth grade students in the English as a New Language program at Barnum Woods Elementary School celebrated the inaugural Family Heritage and Culture Museum on June 5.

Students showcased projects based on their family’s culture and the countries from which they hail. Trifold poster boards were filled with facts and fun information from students’ research on countries such as China, Brazil, Honduras, India and Columbia. Students were also encouraged to bring in a native dish for their classmates to enjoy.

“We are so proud of these students for working so hard on their projects,” said fifth grade teacher Jessica McCann.
