Hmong CLAnD is an after-school enrichment program that provides opportunities for all students to learn about the Hmong heritage through four different strands.The four strands are culture, literacy, art, and dance. Each strand can be taught by school staff, parents, or community members. CLAnD students participate in district-wide celebrations. For example, dancers perform at end-of-the-year celebrations, art students share art and textile work so that all SPPS students and families can learn more about Hmong culture.
The goal of the Hmong CLAnD program is to promote Hmong culture, literacy, art, and traditional dance for all students through quality educational opportunities and connections to the larger community. Hmong CLAnD is held at various elementary and secondary schools throughout the St. Paul Public Schools. Schools can decide to participate in Hmong CLAnD on a yearly basis so the number of school sites offering Hmong CLAnD varies from year to year.
