BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Middle school students at Bronxville's Chapel School utilized technology to bridge their lessons with students across the globe.
The seventh- and eighth-graders had the opportunity to speak to the Winston Churchill School in Mexico City, Mexico to compare Halloween and Day of the Dead.
Ms. Liliana, middle school teacher at the Winston Churchill School, was eager to connect with The Chapel School via Skype to share stories and customs between both celebrations and for both schools to practice their English and Spanish translations, according to a release from TCS.
Students from both schools are excited to continue the dialogue and share their holiday traditions and upcoming experiences.
Various programs at the school enable the diverse Chapel School family -- which includes parents, guardians, students, teachers, administrators -- to explore and celebrate traditions and accomplishments of people from a wide range of backgrounds, the release said.
Field trips, special visitors and interdisciplinary curriculum connections help to make each unique experience meaningful and memorable.
“As we prepare our students for high school and beyond, our uniquely small class sizes enable us to partner with parents and guardians to meet the increasingly complex social, physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs of today's 'tweens',” said TCS Principal Michael Schultz.
