On Monday, November 8th, the One Heart One Mind Many Cultures Club met in the Millenium Room for its very first meeting.
This is a new club set up by the Student Life Office in order to explore the many cultures that constitute the KMHS family.
Mr. Moncada, a Student Life Office faculty member, shared, “We want to offer opportunities for every student in the building to have their cultures and experiences represented and validated.”
Last week, students took a survey in their History classes about their cultures for the One Heart One Mind Many Cultures Club. Results have shown that Firebirds come from a total of 76 countries worldwide.
“I am interested in being a part of this club because my culture is a big part of who I am and my identity”, stated Senior Maya Jean Philippe, “Starting a club like this creates a more inclusive and accepting environment for students to be in.”
The One Heart One Mind Many Cultures Club is student-run and is open to students from all grades. As of right now, it meets every other Monday in the Millenium Room after sodality. However, some activities may only be for certain grade levels and meetings can move to other days of the week or to other locations if it is a joint activity with another club.
If students have any questions, they can ask Mrs. Mulligan, the assistant principal of the Student Life Office.
