Atkinson fifth-graders fostered an understanding and appreciation of various cultures with their trip to Alley Park in Queens. They participated in several cultural celebrations including dancing with Native Americans, Spanish Americans, and Africans. They also observed Asian acrobats and viewed birds of prey soar through the sky. The students actively enjoyed their outdoor classroom with all of its fun activities. Staff members and students extend their warmest gratitude to Ms. Karen Wecksler for organizing this memorable experience, and also to all teachers and chaperones who assisted.
