Today our students learned about and created traditional Korean masks! Then, students learned traditional Korean dances as they wore their masks. A big shout out to our KPA who brought in the instructor, donated their time, organized and supplied all the materials for this very special activity for international day!

Our humanities supervisor, Grace Chun, was recently highlighted by News 12 for her work in learning about and promoting Asian American and Pacific Islander history. She is part of a special cohort in the state to ensure visibility and representation of AAIP in our classrooms and schools. In Cresskill, we believe our curriculum should contain "mirrors" where students can see themselves represented and "windows" that allow them to see the experiences of others. We are grateful for the work our entire curriculum department is doing to bring awareness of the diverse world we live in. Here is the article and video: https://newjersey.news12.com/educators-gather-at-fdu-for-program-to-learn-how-to-teach-asian-american-and-pacific-islander-history

Thank you to Filco for a generous donation of $5,000. We plan to put the funds towards the repair and upgrade of the digital sign for the district. While more fundraising is needed, it's a great start for that project. Thank you Filco!
