Multicultural Day –
January 26th

Our first event for this semester is Multicultural Day - Friday, January 26th!   Countries will be assigned soon. If you see a classroom representing a country you are from and have items or artifacts to share, and/or can make a famous native dish please email Lexi Henderson for specific instructions and details.  Please remember to clearly label all the ingredients for any food items you wish to share as we do have students with allergies to various things. Dress Attire: We encourage you to dress your child in garments from your country of origin or a country of their choosing.
