Students Explore Native American Culture

MERSD Core Value ~ Climate
We believe our schools must create an environment of respect and appreciation for individual and cultural differences and instill a passion for responsible social action, both locally and globally. To this end we endeavor to help or students develop a multicultural world view.

One example of this effort can be seen in our elementary students' study of local Native American culture as they develop an understanding of the roots of our Thanksgiving tradition.  Read about our elementary students' experience with the Wampanoag Nation Singers and Dancers in the Gloucester Times article Going Native.
