BCSD Migrant Students and Families Visit Holidays Lights at CALM
December 30, 2016 – Dozens of students in the Bakersfield City School District’s (BCSD) Migrant Education Program had the opportunity to visit the Holiday Lights exhibit at the California Living Museum (CALM). Those who attended include students in the One Book, One Bakersfield, One Kern Academy, as well as students and families of the Migrant Family Academy.
A group of K-5 graders and their families from Horace Mann Elementary School also had the opportunity to visit the exhibit with their teacher. “Thank you for including me in the Migrant CALM trip,” said teacher Roxanne Briganti. “Every parent thanked me and all the students’ eyes sparkled at the lights and animated light shows.”
This was the first time many of these students visited CALM. The day included rides on the holiday train and carousel, and a visit with Santa Claus.
