In an effort to help our students understand and be an informed member of our global community, children and staff at Shepherd Glen held a Multicultural-Day. Students prepared and displayed their research and learnings about different countries and their cultures. Pictured here are students and teachers exploring a diverse set of musical instruments from many cultures while engaging in story telling. What a great day!
