Yesterday, Binhua Chen, the mother of Optional student Annie Chen, visited Grahamwood Elementary’s 3rd grade to present on how their family celebrates the Chinese New Year. “She came and talked to our students about this holiday,” stated teacher Grace Henderson. “She taught our children about the Chinese New Year and how wonderful our cultural differences are.” Grahamwood Elementary is unique in that it has one of the most diverse student populations anywhere in the Midsouth region. The school is diverse culturally, ethnically, socioeconomically, religiously, and even, geographically. We routinely highlight this uniqueness through student and parent lead presentations that both inform and celebrate.
