Webb celebrates its annual Day of Languages on Wednesday, May 17.
The Day of Languages is a tradition that encourages the Webb community to reflect on the value of a global education, our diverse student body, and world language study. This year's theme, THE HUMANITIES, recognizes the uniquely human side of language and art in all their forms and how they empower us humans to express ourselves, to share our experiences, and to relate to one another — the belief that there will always be something incredibly powerful in humans telling our individual stories through our own words and actions, no matter how much else technology like AI can do for us.
Celebrations will begin with an all-school chapel program in Barton Athletic Center. Students will be treated to a live mariachi band and grade-level culture competitions, and winners for the related language and art contests will be announced. Contest participants were asked to draw on the theme of THE HUMANITIES and to use their language and art skills to capture their own unique voices, stories and experiences in their contest entries.
Throughout the afternoon, students will have a variety of activities to choose from during their lunches and free periods. Crafts, games, cultural activities and contests will be hosted by faculty from the Department of World Languages in several indoor and outdoor campus locations.
