Roseville High School will host its second annual Multicultural Day on November 1. Last year, the event featured dances, musical performances, food and stands representing different cultures. 

While certain events from last year’s day will continue this year, such as the fashion show, this year the event will expand. For instance, previously the outdoor area near the 100’s hosted student-run booths that each represented a certain culture. However, this year each culture will occupy a whole room in the classrooms surrounding senior square.

Teachers Keshila Jones and Jeffrey Underwood have coordinated the event with input from students in Multicultural Club, which meets every Friday to plan for Multicultural Day.

“We get to celebrate the diversity of students on campus,” Underwood said. “[Everyone] has a story, and we want to hear it.”
