Connolly School fifth-graders celebrated the completion of their research projects on South American countries and the Western Hemisphere with an International Feast on May 22.

Students enjoyed multicultural music and traditional ethnic foods and desserts prepared by their parents. They also had an opportunity to view the informative, research-based posters created by their classmates, which were displayed on the walls of the cafeteria. Students used iPads and books from the school’s library to conduct their research. They also watched videos in their classroom that highlighted different holidays, cultural dances and feasts of their respective country of study. The projects included information on geography, well-known landmarks, famous people and capitol cities. 

The culminating event was organized by special education teacher Valerie Scicchitano and featured colorful tablecloths created by the students. A wonderful time was had by all!
