Multicultural Curriculum

Our Multicultural Curriculum is one in which that was created from a need in our community to be accepting of all races, cultures, and religions.  This acceptance is evident in the books that are read, the activities that are part of the weekly curriculum, and the lessons that are taught.  Here at DIGI Multiculturalism is important because the world is changing every day.  We teach our students and staff that we all must learn to accept and get along with all cultures, races, and religions in order to become productive citizens of the world.  It is the job of our teachers to prepare our students for the real world, and the real world is a multicultural one.  We take this responsibility seriously and seize the opportunity to teach our students love, and acceptance.  


For example, we provide each classroom with a host of multicultural books, display posters or artwork on the walls.  We include in the curriculum a discussion of differences and similarities in cultures.  Our art lesson plans provide students with multicultural paint, paper, and crayons.  It is also an effort each school year to connect our students with international pen pals, this allows the class to communicate with a class in a different country via Skype.
