Library Global Literacy Project

What is our Global Community?
Each year in the Q1 library, we like to encourage students to share their family’s heritage during our Global Literacy week. In year’s past we’ve done a Diversity Quilt, which showed family traditions & flags representing the family’s origins. We’ve also done a “Peace” wall to show the different languages in which our diverse population of students would say the word Peace. This year I would like to display on a map where our students come from. Show them a visual of our “Global Community” here at Quest. By doing this we would like to know what State or Country your student was born, or if your student would prefer, where their family originates from. We will then put their name on a “sticky” arrow & place them on the map. I think this will be a fun way to show how diverse our student population is here in West haven, Utah.
For responding, your students name will also be entered into a drawing to win a small prize here in the library. There will be one winner per class.
It really is fun to see where we all originate from & have the students start thinking a little more Globally. Also possibly finding a kinship with students from the same areas of the world.

Thank you for participating!
Mrs. Anderson Q1 Librarian

The next two weeks before Christmas Break

Hey Parents! 
We are starting Christmas around the world! We will be learning about different countries, including where they are located, foods they eat, clothing, and how they celebrate the holidays. We will be doing these activities at the end of the day on most days. If you have any questions or concerns about allergies to foods, please contact Mrs. Ezzell and/or Mrs. Woodrow. 
**We had all of you fill out a food permission form at back to school night, so no permission needed! This is just a reminder!
