Donversity week kicked off on Monday with a Flash Mob of  teachers and students during lunch.

The theme of the Flash Mob was “unity in diversity” and it was designed to celebrate Amador being a very diverse campus.

“Student and teachers dancing together symbolized togetherness. That made me feel like I could connect with my teachers on a personal level,” said Sara Sanguinetti (‘19).

The Flash Mob was organized by Samara Ayoob-Ahmad (’19) and it was choreographed by Abby Smith.

“The committee really wanted to see a flashmob this year for Donversity Week, so I decided to put one together with teachers and students. It wasn’t perfect, but it worked out. Special thanks to Abby Smith for the choreography,” said Samara.

Students also had the opportunity to take a glance at the Donversity Art Gallery which opened on Monday in AV Library Lab rooms A & B. It will be open to students, teachers, and classes all week.
