We recently had a holiday luncheon last year for our preschool students and parents. This was a fun time for students to spend time with their classmates outside of the classroom and and experience real life settings. In the day time, the students come to learn and stimulate creativity and thinking.

The luncheon was still apart of the development process, as students were able to encounter both students and parents from diverse backgrounds and cultures. As our society is ever changing, students must adapt to the differences both inside and outside of the classroom. Students learn a deeper understanding of those who are different from us.

It is important for students to develop different human relationships to adjust better to a school environment, to be eager to learn more about other cultures and create environments that give themselves and other students around them the confidence to be themselves.

The students were able to fully engage in an environment outside of the classroom, showing progress and growth that will help them reach a bright future. Teaching acceptance of others in school will help with academic performance and engaging with people outside of school. This is an important step to develop our children’s understanding and tolerance of others, helping them contribute to their Milford community in a positive way.
