Eighth graders at Polk County Middle School experienced cultures around the world during Culture Day. They rotated through classes learning about Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, France, Egypt and the Czech Republic. At each stop, they had their passports stamped. Culture Day promotes PCMS’s School Improvement Plan of raising global awareness.
