Estabrook Heritage Festival


Vision Statement
The Estabrook Elementary, in partnership with the community, will establish positive relationships and sustain a safe, caring and engaging environment while promoting an appreciation for our diverse community as an integral part of school life. High expectations for both students and educators will be the standard to create lifelong learners and promote career readiness. At Estabrook we will embrace the gifts of the individual student while providing a rigorous curriculum. An Estabrook graduate will exhibit good citizenship and character while achieving their full potential.

Effective: December 2015

Estabrook Heritage Festival

A warm and inviting experience was had by all at Estabrook's Heritage Festival this week! Over 122 people enjoyed tastes of food from around the world provided by Estabrook families.  Students enjoyed filling their passports with country stamps and playing learning games with their blow-up globes. The evening was capped off with a special book reading by Principal Johnson, with translation provided by EL Educator, Margarita Dirlikov and with a final closing performance by Capoeira! 

Capoeira is an art form that defies description. It began in Brazil and  It is a fast and versatile Martial Art that involves creativity, intuition, grace, strength, history, and tradition.  Capoeira is also a story of triumph and freedom, as it is rooted in the rich cultures brought to Brazil by enslaved Africans. Capoeira is now spreading across our world. 

Estabrook families and staff look forward to what we will learn about at next year's Heritage event!
