Winterfest - Light up the Night

Newport Heights Elementary Winterfest 2022 - Light up the Night is coming Friday, December 9th from 5:00-6:30

With this event our goal is to bring our diverse cultures together to celebrate the many winter festivals and holidays held throughout the world! We hope to both affirm the identities of our students and build their cultural competency. Students, their families, and the community will come together to decorate the 1st floor windows of our school with displays to celebrate their families' cultural or religious winter holidays.

Through hearing and reflecting upon the stories, the students will learn how storytelling is teaching. They will learn about the beliefs and philosophies of the First People of this land through listening to the legends. Students will also learn to create tribal designs that make the stories visual. This evening will tie in with Bellevue’s Since Time Immemorial K-5 curriculum.
