The Merrick Avenue Middle School World Language Department recently hosted its first Cultural Awareness Day.  

Students shared dishes that reflected their cultural backgrounds and participated in activities that allowed them to learn about various cultures and their peers.  

“It was a wonderful way to bring all the students at Merrick Avenue together so they could relate to one another and develop stronger bonds,” said Principal Taryn Johnson.
