Forest Park School District 91

In recent weeks, ELL teacher, Mrs. Torres has been teaching students at Garfield about Diwali.  Diwali is the start of the Hindu New Year. It is celebrated in autumn during a new moon. People often light lamps and candles to celebrate it.  As a result, Diwali is also called the Festival of Lights.  Diwali spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.  A few of our students celebrate Diwali and wore native dress to show their classmates how it looks.
