“Walk in Someone’s Shoes” 

It’s rare that a school in Maine can say they have students attending from over 5 different countries, but that’s exactly what was going on at the Leonard Middle School in Old Town. The school celebrated this week as the “Walk in Someone’s Shoes” week, and as part of the festivities foreign exchange students presented what it is like in each of their countries. In an assembly students shared dances and music from their native lands. Japan, Thiland, The Middle East, and other countries were represented through the eyes of middle school aged students from those places. Deemed “International Day” today also included workshops after the assembly where Maine students were given the chance to ask the foreign exchange students about that it’s like to grow up around the world.
