The Glastonbury schools’ foreign language/English language learners department is inviting community members to the fourth “Foreign Language Literacy Showcase” as teachers—along with local students—will show their work promoting global literacy.
At 7 p.m. at Smith Middle School, 216 Addison Road, on Thursday, Feb. 7, teachers and students will demonstrate foreign language learning through literature with a variety of posters, presentations, projects, skits, stories and more. Student work—from Kindgarten through 12th grade—will be on display throughout the Smith cafeteria.

The goal of this free event is to connect all cultures through literature.
