Second-grade Parent Teaches Students About Diwali
The five days of Diwali were celebrated in early November. Second-graders in Cicley Knecht and Danielle Necessary’s classes learned about the Hindu festival of lights from Resheta Ramineni, mother of second-grade student Bhagya. Ramineni read a book about the story of Diwali and shared photos and family traditions surrounding the holiday. “The second-graders had an opportunity to ask questions about the holiday, and Resheta provided wonderful answers that helped paint the picture of this special holiday in the Indian culture,” Knecht said.
