Diwali Celebration and Educational Outreach

Diwali Celebration and Educational Outreach
Graphic: "Happy Diwali"

PV student Kareena Shah and Media Specialist Mrs. Margaret White collaborated on a cultural outreach educational initiative that ran in both schools.

This started when Mrs. White observed a Diwali festival in another town one weekend and then thought to bring this to PVRHSD. When Mrs. White mentioned this to Dr. Gundersen, he connected her with PV student, Kareena Shah, who took the opportunity and ran with it along with her mother, Rashmi Shah.  These three have put together a wonderful educational opportunity that many students were able to take advantage of by coming to the Media Center and seeing the beautiful Diwali decorations, tasty treats, and educational materials while learning about a holiday that might be unfamiliar to them.

The district would like to thank Kareena, Mrs. Shah, and Mrs. White for their efforts in raising awareness for our community.
