To celebrate the school choice, diversity, and culture in the Brooklyn community, education leaders are going to join together. The event will include speakers and presenters, as well as workshops for the children, including African drumming and an International Children’s Film Festival. The event will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states.
“School is more than a place where you go to learn academics. Our school is a community that honors the special talents of each individual – one where we learn to work together to form a global perspective surrounded by values of social justice, service, and faith. Because our families are able to choose to participate in a values-based education here at the academy, we are able to nurture the growth of active, global citizens who are prepared to enter college, career, and beyond with intellectual vigor and a strong moral compass,” said Manuela Adsuar-Pizzi, principal of St. Francis Xavier – Queen of All Saints Catholic Academy.
