The Culture Fair occurred on January 25, 2024, from 2:45 – 3:30!

Our pre-k students are ending their unit on culture titled Not All the Same, Not All Different. To share what they learned, the pre-kindergarten team hosted a Culture Fair where Harmony students experienced food, clothes, celebrations, art, and language from various countries.

Did you know that one in seven D.C. residents is an immigrant, while about one in nine residents is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent? This year, we celebrated the countries represented by DC’s top 6 immigrant populations:

El Salvador (PKM)
China (PKM)
Turkey (PK3)
Ethiopia (PK3)
Trinidad (PK4)
Mexico (PK4)

With the support of their parents and teachers, our pre-K students researched an aspect of culture from one of the countries listed and presented their findings to the school, along with their collaborators. The research projects were exhibited in Harmony’s cafeteria for the entire school to experience.
