During the holiday season students, staff and parents of Junction Road Elementary and West End Memorial in Springhill participated in a Christmas Around the World Culture Fair. The students, staff and community learned about the African American cultural celebration of Kwanzaa. 

Attendees learned about the seven principles of Kwanzaa, the Kwanzaa symbols and many words in the Swahili language. Students created artwork, and performed songs, dances and presentations to show what they had learned. The fair was a great success and provided an exceptional way to learn about the cultural traditions of Kwanzaa.
