Global Connections: What Is It?

  • Since 2001, Smith Middle School has been celebrating world cultures through a series of Global Connections events.
    • Global Connections Assembly (November 15, 2019): Students lead a flag processional and perform traditional music, dance, or spoken word during school.
    • Global Connections Week (November 18-22, 2019): Students are encouraged to wear cultural attire from the Americas on Monday, Europe/Russia/Australia on Tuesday, Africa on Wednesday, and Asia on Thursday.  Everyone is encouraged to wear Smith attire on Friday as a show of Cyclone pride!
    • Global Connections Night (November 21, 2019: 5:30-8 PM): The halls of Smith explode with cultural exhibits created by students, staff, and community members, giving attendees a night to discover music, food, and traditions from around the world.  Student cultural performances are 6:15-6:55 and 7:15-7:55 in the auditorium.
