Third-grade students at St. James Elementary celebrated their heritage with Immigration Day on June 16.

For the Immigration Day project, students had to locate a document that was linked to their family history in some way. Each student then traced their family heritage back to that document to show their lineage.

Following a group musical performance highlighting different countries around the world in song – such as Australia, Brazil and Japan – the third-graders showed off their projects for parents and invited guests into the multi-purpose room.

Back in the classrooms, the celebration continued as students and guests sampled different ethnic food prepared by each family.
