Fifth-graders at JFK proudly shared their knowledge of the Western Hemisphere at the school’s Social Studies and Art Fair on March 25. The well-attended event celebrated what they have learned in social studies over the past year, showcasing creative student artwork and 150 different projects that represented the United States, Canada and Latin American countries, indigenous people in this region of the world and famous people in history.

“Our students engaged in meaningful conversations with parents and friends about the research they did and the information they gained,” said Principal Deborah Smith. “Conversations on the geography, economics, governments and cultural diversity of the regions were heard throughout the gym and cafeteria where the projects were displayed.”
