Students from Physical Education and Languages Classes visited booths to learn about the continents represented at Fleming.  They were treated to food samples and short performances that highlighted the diversity at the school.

The students learned they have more in common than differences. For example, they ALL like taking selfies.  Roanoke City Public Schools believes diversity is our strength.  Fleming's International Day was a great way to display the school system's motto.
