International Weekend to Celebrate Diversity at GWA
Cultural and social diversity are hallmarks of the GEMS World Academy – Chicago community. The GWA Parent Teacher Organization will host a two-day event later this month that both explores and celebrates the different cultural backgrounds that call our school home.
GEMS World Academy-Chicago’s own Thomas Steele-Maley, the school’s director of technology and innovation, recently appeared on the list of 100 Most Social K-12 Tech Leaders on Twitter, as compiled by the Huffington Post.
Using social media, the web and old-fashioned pavement-pounding, the sixth grade at GEMS World Academy-Chicago has raised more than $4,300 for Water for South Sudan, a nonprofit organization that drills wells in villages with little or no access to clean water.
