Dressed in garments representing 30 countries, students at one Memphis school threw a world-class celebration to mark the last week of the school year for Shelby County Schools.
Second-graders at John P. Freeman Optional School created displays about countries they’ve been studying and invited their families and other students to take a tour.
Called Global Fest, the annual event was organized by teacher Melissa Collins, who has traveled to India and Brazil through several global teaching programs. Her teaching style aims to bring those experiences to life for her students.
“Global Fest is important to me because it gives the students a different perspective of other people around the world,” Collins said.
