Autrey Mill Middle Hosts Multicultural Night
The 10th annual Multicultural Night was held at Autrey Mill Middle School. The purpose of this event was to celebrate the cultural diversity of the school and promote cultural understanding.
Some 20 countries were represented with displays of photographs, maps and artifacts distinct to that culture, and foods unique to that country were shared and enjoyed by all.
A program of varied musical entertainment from each of the countries followed that included dance and instrumental performances. Full costumed performers impressed the crowd of more than 350 family and community members. Twenty-six origami cranes were on display in honor of the 26 Sandy Hook Elementary victims. The cranes were made by sixth-grade student Ryo Sato.
