Fun, soccer, crafts, music goods and cultural diversity are filling the halls today at Greenfield Elementary!
Carolyn Perez and Atabeyra Guzman show some items from Puerta Rico
Carolyn Perez and her daughter Atabyra Guzman are from Puerto Rico and work in the Diversity Department at Wachovia Bank. They are allowed to donate four hours of time each month to community service so this month they brought their culture to Greenfield. Perez made a dress for Guzman to use in folk lore dancing.
