In Miss Sherry's third grade class at ICS, every other Friday is heritage day and ends with a presentation by one or two students. Some bring food, some dress up, some tell stories...

Lee notes that because about half of all ICS families are refugees or recent immigrants, it isn't surprising that the school is abuzz with talk of different cultural heritages.
