Cultural Lessons in 2nd Grade

TSS parent Dr. Shruti Patel visited 2nd grade yesterday to talk about Diwali, a 5-day festival celebrated at this time of year by Hindus and Sikhs. Dr. Patel was assisted by her son Achyut and Neil Murarka to explain the traditions and meaning behind each of the five days. Students learned about the festival of lights, cleaning of coins and jewelry, feasts, and fireworks. Thank you, Dr. Patel, for teaching our students about this special Indian festival.
