Bulloch County Schools Holiday Events 2014
Bulloch County Schools now serves children whose families come from 17 different countries. More than 24 different native languages are spoken by children who are students at one of our 15 campuses. With such a treasure of international diversity, it makes the art, drama, music, literature and customs of different countries even more meaningful.
Throughout the year, our fine arts, language arts, foreign language and social studies teachers tell about the contributions and influences of other cultures on the fields of music, art, drama, and literature. This is especially true during the holidays as children learn about the traditions of holidays that are celebrated in our community, like Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah. We invite you to enjoy the sights and sounds of this holiday season. See a list of our events below.
