Ramirez ES Celebrates Seventh Annual Festival of Nations
Last week, Ramirez Elementary came together as a school community to celebrate diversity during its seventh annual Festival of Nations. Each year, Ramirez is joined by the Texas Tech International Cultural Center, parents, and guests from the greater Lubbock community to teach students about different cultures locally and globally.
This year, parents from countries including Guatemala, Brazil, Argentina, Denmark, Cameroon, and China gave presentations. Additionally, the Bal-Folk group from the Texas Tech School of Music played music and taught students a French folk dance, and the Lubbock High School mariachi and ballet folklórico performed. Students and staff were invited to dress in their traditional ethnic clothing for the day in order to share their own heritage and traditions.
