For the past three years, the Diversity Festival has taken place during the final quarter of the year at Antelope Valley Adventist School. It was created as a celebration of cultures and an appreciation of diversity on campus. Throughout the quarter, students learned about the history, culture, and customs that shape each country. In preparation for the festival, classrooms were transformed to showcase the artwork, clothing, music, food, and other highlights of each country. Read the article and watch the video at these links:

Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 247 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the 13 American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. And now, those 13 original colonies have grown to 50 states!
A very happy and safe Fourth of July to All God’s People!
