All Pierson School students are invited to Celebrate Diversity on early dismissal day! The HCH Library and Clinton Youth and Family Services in conjunction with The Anti-Defamation League are hosting an interactive program on Thursday, March 20th from 12:30-3pm. During the program, children will play games and ice breakers, do some role playing and do a Readers' Theater version of the book Julia's Star. A pizza lunch will also be served.

Julia's Star was written by Johanna Justin-Jinich when she was 15 years old and tells the story of a young girl and her friends moving beyond stereotypes and into acceptance of the different religions and cultures of others.
