For Ms. Sofi’s “Beyond Differences” project, students introduced Arabic culture and language to the school through an international week that concluded with an event celebrating diversity. The focus of the program was on how Middle Eastern culture influenced other disciplines. 

With the help of the music, dance, and language immersion teachers, and the librarian, Ms. Sofi developed learning activities for students as well as organized and conducted several performances. These performances included an Arabic musical, a concert featuring Arab songs, and a drama based on Arabic culture. She also organized crafts representing Middle Eastern culture that were showcased during an exhibition for students.
