As the end of Ramadan approaches, this month’s meeting of DCD’s Culture Club featured some learning and sharing about this special time for Muslim students and their families. Lower students had fun crafting special Ramadan sun catchers and Eid Al-Fitr cards, featuring the crescent moon. These colorful sun catchers made with construction paper and tissue paper are symbolic of the beautiful lanterns that adorn streets and homes during the month of Ramadan. Eid Al-Fitr is a festival that marks the end of Ramadan and fasting, and the crescent moons on the front of the cards the students crafted, symbolize the start of the new month.
DCD’s Culture Club meets eight times over the course of the year. It’s a time for lower school students of color to gather, share, learn and celebrate. Click here to learn more about this affinity space.
