The Hampton Bays High School social studies department hosted a Diversity Day on Nov. 16. The day provided an opportunity for students to celebrate the community’s rich cultural heritage.  

Students heard from a variety of guest speakers, including parents, staff members and relatives of students, who spoke about their cultural differences, obstacles they have faced and life experiences. Among the topics addressed were immigration, civil rights, racism, perceptions and the LGBQT community.  

“Our community of learners came together, shared experiences and learned from one another,” said Denise Sullivan, the district’s assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. “Our students engaged in a dialogue about empathy, compassion and stereotypes and hopefully learned that their voices count.”
