INTERNATIONAL CULTURE CLUB
The mission of the International Culture Club is to provide programs and resources that enhance knowledge and encourage understanding of inclusivity for all of our students. We believe a diverse and inclusive school community makes us better informed, more compassionate and better prepared to effect positive change in the world.
The International Culture Club is proud to have celebrated the amazing diversity we have on campus! They have honored holidays & observation months such as Día De Los Muertos & Winter Solstice, and they have organized amazing performances on our campus for Native American Heritage Month and Chinese New Year. And at the end of the year, they organize an immersive experience for students called International Day which highlights 5-6 countries throughout the world.

Volunteers are invited to assist students in sorting their trash at the end of each lunch period. We partner with Food Finders, the Seal Beach Naval Station, and Building Futures to ensure that no food goes to waste. These wonderful organizations get the food to those who need it most.
JESTER BOOK DEDICATION
This "Friends of McGaugh Media Center" program is a special way to honor someone on a birthday or a holiday, for a special achievement such as an award or promotion, or just for fun!
Books are read aloud by one of the McGaugh's Book Jesters to honor the recipient. A bookplate with a special message will be placed inside the book, and a thank you card will be presented at the time of the dedication. The dedicated book can be enjoyed at home for one week and then is returned to remain in the Media Center. A selection of books are available to choose from in the parent resource room in the Media Center.
The McGaugh Media Center has added over 2000 new books through dedicated book donations.
The McGaugh Garden is a wonderful way to use the schoolyard as a classroom by reconnecting students with the natural world and the true source of food. Children are able to learn how to take care of our earth so it continues to produce. And it teaches them valuable gardening and agriculture concepts through science, math, engineering, art and technology.
Explore the Arts and Express Yourself
National PTA's Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.
Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.
The theme for the 2023-2024 program year is I am Hopeful Because.... Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
