UP­PER ME­RION » The Di­ver­sity Day Com­mit­tee in con­junc­tion with Com­mu­nity of Car­ing and the Cul­tural Her­itage Club are work­ing to­gether to pre­pare Up­per Me­rion’s Di­ver­sity Day: Thurs­day, March 22, 2018. Our key­note speak­ers will be Sam Drazin, a mo­ti­va­tional speaker shar­ing his ex­pe­ri­ence grow­ing up with Treacher Collins Syn­drome—a rare con­gen­i­tal dis­or­der re­sult­ing in both fa­cial anom­aly and hear­ing loss, and Asheq Fa­zlul­lah with the Delaware Val­ley Speaker’s Bureau, pre­sent­ing about what it’s like be­ing a Mus­lim in Amer­ica to­day.

Di­ver­sity Day is an allschool event that al­lows the stu­dents of Up­per Me­rion Area High School to learn about other cul­tures through speak­ers, ac­tiv­i­ties, food, and fun. Af­ter lis­ten­ing to two speak­ers in the morn­ing, stu­dents will have an op­por­tu­nity to at­tend class­room ac­tiv­i­ties fol­lowed by an ex­plo­ration of sta­tions through­out the build­ing. Some of the class­room ac­tiv­i­ties and some of the events held dur­ing ex­plo­ration time in­clude: a cul­ture fair, cul­tural danc­ing, a cof­fee house, a French cafe, in­ter­na­tional board games and sports, se­nior pro­ject ap­pli­ca­tions, and etcetera. The day will con­clude with a fi­nal assem­bly.

The theme for this year is Travel. This theme fo­cuses on ex­pe­ri­ences and strug­gles Up­per Me­rion Area stu­dents and staff have faced around the world. It ac­knowl­edges the tremen­dous changes the world’s pop­u­la­tion has ex­pe­ri­enced over the past few decades, as well as those changes that are com­ing soon. Through Di­ver­sity Day, Up­per Me­rion Area School Dis­trict’s goal of cre­at­ing a com­mu­nity of car­ing will be re­in­forced by rais­ing aware­ness, by pro­vid­ing new in­for­ma­tion, and by en­cour­ag­ing stu­dent in­ter­ac­tion and dis­cus­sion. The com­mit­tee wel­comes ideas, es­pe­cially from com­mu­nity mem­bers who can of­fer a ser­vice or ex­per­tise dur­ing this day.

Stu­dents may bring money in or­der to pur­chase food, cul­tural items, and raf­fle tick­ets. All pro­ceeds will be do­nated to an or­ga­ni­za­tion ben­e­fit­ting hur­ri­cane re­lief in Puerto Rico.
