World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development

Every year on May 21st, the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development urges everyone to do their part to bridge the gap between cultures. The day is often referred to as Diversity Day.

According to the UN, bridging this gap is essential for peace, development, and stability. When we deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity we can achieve these four goals:

  • Support sustainable systems for the governance of culture.
  • Achieve a balanced flow of cultural goods and services.
  • Integrate culture into the frameworks of sustainable development.
  • Promote human rights and fundamental freedoms.

These four goals were established during the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Besides achieving these goals, embracing other cultures helps us to lead more fulfilling lives. This fulfillment happens intellectually, spiritually, and morally. How exactly do we embrace other cultures? It all begins by having a dialogue between those who are different than us. Other ways to embrace our differences is to develop respect and mutual understanding for different cultures and those of other faiths.

Attendance Awareness 2024!

Did you know that if a student misses just two days each month they will be "chronically absent" by the end of the school year? Students who are chronically absent learn less than their classmates who attend daily and are less likely to read on grade level, participate in advanced classes, and graduate from high school college and career ready. Be sure your child attends school every day they are healthy enough to do so.

 Let's work together to make sure our children are #ShowingUpTogether!

In the event your child is unable to attend school be sure to report this to our office at (209)830-3309 within two days of returning to school. Absences not cleared can lead to strict attendance requirements for students, fines for families, and lower funding for our school.
