Immigrant Academic Showcase – Monday, March 23rd 5 – 7 p.m.

Independent School District 518 has the great pleasure and honor of educating students from all backgrounds. A broad range of socio-economic, religious, ability level and cultural backgrounds are represented in the district’s more than 3,400 students. This diversity comes with its own set of hurdles, but those can be and are overcome on a daily basis at ISD 518, where excellence in education is provided for all students.

On March 23, a group of students with a particularly special story to be told will be celebrated. At the Immigrant Academic Showcase, students from all grade levels in ISD 518 who have immigrated to the United States will showcase their work and accomplishments to the community. This event is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend and see some examples of the great work done in the halls of ISD 518 everyday.

Items being accepted to be showcased include artwork, science fair projects, essays and poems, posters, videos and a wide range of other content created by immigrant students. The event will be organized in a museum-style with displays of work being available for viewing by students, staff, parents, families and community members. Some students who have submitted work may be available to present on their submitted piece.

All members of the public are invited to join ISD 518 students, staff, parents and family members as immigrant students showcase their accomplishments in District 518. These students have exemplified strength and prosperity in many ways and are eager to display the work they have done. Please join us in celebrating the hard work and achievements of immigrant students at the Immigrant Academic Showcase from 5 to 7 p.m. March 23 in the Worthington High School Cafeteria.
