Student club celebrates Arabic language and culture

Dozens of students will gather for a festive potluck to display what they’ve learned in Arabic World Language classes and in the Arabic Cultural Club at Mission High School. The event will celebrate the cultures of the Arabic-speaking diaspora with traditional foods, music, a student work display, students reciting Arabic language poetry, and the “Happy Birthday” song sung in Arabic. Supported by SFUSD’s Multilingual Pathways Department and Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF), Arabic World Language classes are an opportunity for both native and non-Arabic speaking students to build oral fluency with a focus on academic reading and writing. SFUSD is one of a few districts across the state that offers Arabic as a World Language.
