October is Cultural Month

Every year, our classrooms take the month of October to explore cultures from around the world. Students will learn about different foods, practices, holidays, and more during this month. We invite our families to help us celebrate the diverse cultures.

Cultural Dress Day is an annual tradition at Abner Montessori School. Students are encouraged to dress up as someone from their culture choice. This day will take the place of Halloween. If your child chooses to dress up, please pack a change of clothes for them to change into afterwards.

Please, no children should come dressed in a Halloween costume.

We look forward to an exciting day with lots of great examples from cultures around the world!

Student Cultural Presentations

Your primary student (with the help from a family member) is invited to research and give a presentation about a country of their choice to the child's classroom. These presentations are about sharing interesting facts, foods, and music.
