Student Council president Dayna Macaranas enjoyed this year’s Cultural Diversity Day, despite the unpredictability of the weather. “Cultural Diversity Day turned out to be better than expected. From the mascots to the banner, every class was active and creative when displaying their respective cultures. Everyone was very cooperative and did a great job [with] their presentations.” (PR)
