KLA Schools of Naperville, Naperville West, and Plainfield Celebrate Cultural Diversity with Grand Parade and Cultural Night

Naperville, IL – In a colorful and vibrant culmination of their Cultural Month, KLA Schools of Naperville, Naperville West, and Plainfield hosted a series of Cultural Parades at each school, followed by an inspiring Cultural Night on Friday, March 22nd, at Yellow Box Church. The events showcased the rich tapestry of cultures that make up our community, featuring performances by students from the 3s and 4s programs across all three locations.

The Cultural Night at Yellow Box Church was a spectacle of unity and diversity. Students performed various cultural dances, songs, and poems from around the world. The performances were a testament to the schools' commitment to fostering an understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity among their students.

Executive Director Erica Koegel reflected on the event's significance, stating, "As we gather here, let us take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a community. In a world that often emphasizes our differences, this reminds us of the power of understanding, empathy, and respect." Koegel's words resonated with the audience, reinforcing the event's message of unity through diversity.

The Cultural Parades at KLA Schools of Naperville, Naperville West, and Plainfield served as a prelude to Cultural Night. Students, staff, and families marched in celebration of their heritage and cultural identities, creating a colorful and lively atmosphere that set the stage for the performances.
