Cumberland Trace and WKU Team Up

wku red redBOWLING GREEN, KY (11/28/12) – Cumberland Trace Elementary and Western Kentucky University have teamed up in a unique way to help achieve Kentucky’s goal of educating students to be college and career ready when they graduate from high school.
 
WKU faculty, international students and teachers with the Confucius Institute have been attending classes with children from kindergarten through sixth grade since Monday. Cumberland Trace students are learning first hand where some of the items in their homes and school are manufactured and the logistics involved in getting their favorites on store shelves in Bowling Green. They are able to see and feel currency, games and clothing from multiple countries and continents.
 
The goal is to help Kentucky students understand that to be successful at school and in their careers, they will need to have a global perspective.
 
Cumberland Trace will celebrate diversity with its third annual International Night Thursday, 6-7:30 p.m. The evening will begin with a parade of flags representing the school’s diverse student body. Families will get to experience various customs, clothing, language and cuisine while sampling ethnic dishes from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia and while participating in a variety of interactive cultural workshops hosted by WKU student associations, clubs and community members.
 
Workshops include: Language and Name Printing (International Student Services); Chinese Music (Chinese Music Club); Chinese Script Writing (Wei Xu); Russian Dance (Russian Club); Vietnamese Culture (Vietnamese Student Association); Middle Eastern Dance (Khaldoun Almousily); Celtic Music (Skip Cleavinger); and Zumba (Tina Harris).
