MECC holds culture assemblies to learn about various cultures. This week, students learned about Guatemala. Local Guatemalan moms and daughters provided a presentation that shared their Awakateco language, handmade goods, songs, and customs. Our MECC students and teachers learned the oral differences between numbers, vowel sounds, and words in Awakateco, Spanish, and English. We thank Mrs. Burgherr Shell for organizing a fantastic multicultural experience for all!

We witnessed the cutest jam session in Mr. Brown's music class.💜 MECC students used maracas, tone blocks, egg shaker, and guiro instruments to make a beat together. Under Mr. Brown's direction, the students did a phenomenal job playing in sync.
Introducing children to music at a young age has numerous benefits for their development, such as enhancing their motor skills and improving memory and concentration. Way to go, little musicians! 🎼
