As we move into the fall and winter months, there are many holidays and commemorations that our students and their families will celebrate.  Here are some considerations for supporting our students and their celebrations. Recently, many Unit 5 students celebrated Diwali.  Diwali is a celebration of light and the victory of knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.  It is celebrated for 5 days at the end of October by many Indian families of Hindu faith. Students and staff at Northpoint helped Mr. Harr dress in traditional Indian attire to join the celebration. Mr. Vogel invited Glenn students to celebrate Diwali by wearing traditional Indian attire to school. We appreciate Glenn and Northpoint staff, students, and families for encouraging inclusion in our schools.
