Katy, TX News (November 11, 2015) – Katy ISD’s Beck Junior High, located in Cinco Ranch, recently celebrated its annual “International Day” festival for sixth students. The event was chaired this year by PTA volunteer Usha Machiraju and supported by more than 30 parent volunteers.
Machiraju, who also helped to represent India at the event, commented that “This annual event allows Beck students to enjoy the culture, history and food from many countries in one setting hosted by student parents who proudly and playfully engage the students in a “trip around the world”. This year, more than sixteen different countries were represented.”
According to Beck Junior High Principal Carra Fleming, “International Day is such a valued tradition at Beck Junior High because it truly embraces the many international cultures represented here. I also love the way it brings in volunteers we might not normally see because they truly feel valued and have so much to contribute in this area. I learn and grow as much as the kids do through this event each year.”
