The Barnum Woods Elementary School is a school dedicated to creating a learning environment, which enables our students to meet the demands of a challenging, dynamic society. Our children know that parents, teachers, administrators and the Barnum Woods community, as a whole, are focused on ensuring their development as life-long learners. "

Fourth grade students in Brittany Katz’s and Sara Finkelstein’s classes at Barnum Woods Elementary School recently participated in a multicultural project through the One Voice Multicultural Committee. The students interviewed relatives about their cultures and traditions, then used this information to create a slideshow presentation that included photographs, informational text and captions. The classes also put together a bulletin board outside of their classrooms to display their findings.
Chaired by first grade teacher and administrative intern Taylor Napolitano, the One Voice Multicultural Committee was formed to create a supportive multicultural environment to celebrate each child's uniqueness and culture. The committee also meets to create lesson plans that promote different cultures.
