Wheatley’s Intercultural Unity Assembly a Celebration for All!

A longstanding tradition at Wheatley has been our ICU Assembly and Luncheon on the final day of school before the December recess. On this day, a double period assembly is dedicated to a talent showcase and fashion show that celebrates our many cultures and communities—all organized by our Intercultural Unity Club (ICU).

Described by some as “the best day of the year,” the ICU assembly is truly a showcase of our many student talents. Through music and dance performances, students use the ICU Assembly to celebrate the diverse cultures within our community as a way of bringing us closer together.  After the assembly, students eat food (prepared by our community families) from across many cultures. Leftover food is brought to the INN at the end of the day.

Many thanks to our ICU Advisor, Steven Fitzko, for his work with the students in bringing this day to our community!

Here are some short videos of some of the performances.

We are grateful for the dedication of our music teachers, Angela Luftig, Peggy Ho and Stan Orlovsky — as well as our “adjunct” music teachers, Rick Wilson and Steve Fitzko!
