Points of Interest:
"Hands Across Chittick" is one of a variety of programs in this multicultural school to celebrate diversity. While recognizing the many achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on his birthday, students joined together and held hands to symbolize efforts to make friendships "that are not based on the color of the skin, but by the content of the character."

During the school-wide celebration, students in the Broadcast Club (Chittick News Network) highlighted the accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and demonstrated on-line sites for classrooms to visit. In addition, students recited portions of the "I Have a Dream" speech, recorded songs that foster freedom in America and collectively sang as whole group while uniting "Hands Across Chittick."

Chittick School is focused on prioritizing cultural diversity. Thirty-one native languages are spoken, and ongoing multicultural programs are continually being developed. Programs such as "Hands Across Chittick" give both the students and staff the opportunities to learn to get along with others, and value and respect each other as everyone takes their journey through life
