Multicultural/Diversity Day – Friday, January 20, 2017

Hello BTU school families,

This month’s spirit day is brought to you by the Student Council.

Our upper school scholars actively participated in monthly meetings and came up with a theme for the next Spirit Day. “Multicultural/Diversity Day”

Our scholars envisioned a day that they can come to school and represent their culture or representations of their identity. A chance to express who they are, what symbolizes them or where they are from in a positive and safe way. We are encouraging scholars to wear stickers, flags or colors of your nation or ethnic background, traditional clothing or any positive statement about your personality or identity.

This Multicultural/Diversity Day will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017
