Jacobson Elementary - (2018-2019) Happy Diwali! Jann Johnson's first graders at Jacobson Elementary celebrated the Indian holiday of Diwali during the week of November 12! They learned about the victory of good over evil and how light triumphs over darkness. The students created paper diyas (oil lamps), used sidewalk chalk to design their own rangolis (artwork usually made with colored rice/sawdust), and tasted traditional Diwali sweets. It was an experience we hope they remember for a long time!
