Second grade students at ShadowGlen Elementary showcased their family origins through food and book presentiations during the 4th Annual "Mis Raíces/ My Roots" celebration on Wednesday.
Bobcat students presented books they created to share their family story, a tradition or something special about their parents' and grandparents' country or state of origin. Following the presentations, students reflected about what they learned over a buffet of traditional food from Mexico, Kenya, Venezuela, El Salvador, Sweden, Colombia, Haiti, Ireland, and Congo. The event also promoted parent involvement while celebrating family cultures and diversity.
The event was also featured on Univision News Austin.
