Cultural Connections

Welcome to Awty Cultural Connections (ACC). Our goal is to help the Awty community connect, and to encourage the sense of community with an intercultural flavor which is unique to Awty.

ACC's mission is to celebrate the cultural diversity of Awty by offering a wide variety of fun and engaging activities with the intention of building a strong sense of community.

Because we are one school and one community, but we have two curriculums and so much to share!

Activities range from cuisine events, cultural groups, arts and crafts, and museum outings, to language conversation groups, exploring Houston and more. Events are free of charge unless the venue requires admission (for example a museum).

Through sharing these experiences, the ACC will facilitate new friendships and enhance respect for one another's cultures - all while helping to enrich the Awty community.

Anyone who is a part of the Awty community is simultaneously part of ACC and may participate in any of the events. ACC reaches out to everyone: parents, whole families, faculty and staff, and alumni.
