International Day at school

This is my year as President of the Parent Guild. I had this dream/idea for an International Day at the school. We are incredibly diverse, and I felt that fact should be celebrated.
I asked parents to host tables about their country of origin.

They brought all kinds of things to show.
Generations participated.

Fourteen countries were represented by families at our school. This is the first of this type of event, and it came off swimmingly. We had an Ecuadorian Dance troupe and an Irish Folk musician. The kids each received a "passport" and traveled the globe. I was so proud of everyone. I feel this is my mark on this year.
