Students in North Callaway School District will have a chance to learn from a culture many of them have never been exposed to before. The district signed a one-year deal Wednesday at Auxvasse Elementary with the University of Missouri’s branch of the Confucius Institute, an educational outreach program designed to promote Chinese language, culture and cultural exchange throughout the world. Program leaders and cultural delegates wasted no time, giving a presentation on the Asian nation to about 30 of the school’s middle schoolers.
