The Millyard Museum opened a new exhibit this month entitled, "
Manchester's Immigrants: Then and Now." Any Manchester educator interested in learning more about Manchester's rich history of immigration will be admitted to the exhibit for FREE. T
he cost of admission will be paid for through a portion of our Title III federal grant reserved for professional development focused on building cultural competence within the district.
The Manchester School District is committed to building cultural awareness and cultural competence to better meet the unique needs of the immigrant and refugee families we serve. Attending the exhibit would certainly work to this end by sharing critical cultural perspectives from the lives of Manchester's immigrant and refugee families throughout the city's history.
The exhibit will be open until Friday, May 7th. You will need to show your MANSD ID badge to be admitted at no cost. Please see attached flyer or visit the Millyard Museum website for more info: http://www.manchesterhistoric.org/index.php/events .
If you want to attend a follow-up PD opportunity with a chance to talk with one of the featured contributors of the exhibit, Becky Fields, please plan on joining us Thursday, May 12th at McLaughlin Middle School from 3:30-5:30. Becky will be one of many presenters that day talking about issues facing Manchester's English Learners. A full menu of sessions will be available next week on the MANSD Professional Learning Network: http://plc.mansd.org/ .
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great vacation week everyone!
