On February 27, 2013, Ms. Stayton's AP English Language class partook in a day of Afghani/Muslim culture. These activities served as enrichment after reading the novel A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. Students were given the opportunity to bring in artifacts for extra credit. Cameron Caldwell brought authentic Iraqi money and Taylor Votaw and Samantha Garrett brought aush soup (an Afghani dish). Major Smedley brought authentic middle eastern garb and discussed his military service in the middle east.
