Kids Celebrating Diversity
Merchantville School is "Thankful for its Diversity" and continues to celebrate student differences and distinctiveness through education and art. MES students share and learn about different cultures throughout the year and express this in artwork from the holiday season. As part of their "No Place for Hate" initiative, Merchantville School students highlight and promote the uniqueness of each student. In class, children have the opportunity to exchange information about where their ancestors came from, discuss the words they choose to represent them and participate in a Poetry Slam about diversity.
