What a week this has been! International Day has been an amazing experience. Each class was able to visit 4 different countries throughout the day. Students had their passports “stamped” and they learned a great deal about each country. We are looking forward to seeing the third graders perform traditional dances from 4 different countries. We do hope that you can join us this evening. The doors open at 5:30 PM. Proceed to the cafeteria to experience authentic snacks and view colorful displays for over 20 countries. At 6:30, we will ask the guests to move into the gymnasium, take a seat and get ready to be amazed! The third grade students and teachers have worked tremendously hard for the past two weeks to learn their dances under the direction of Mrs. Joanna Pang Atkins, choreographer. Thanks to PTO funding and Morris Arts sponsorship, Mrs. Atkins joined us to complete a dance residency. This is the seventh year that she has returned. This year’s International Evening presentation is bigger than ever! The show will start promptly at 7:00 PM. Special thanks go out to Mr. & Mrs. Atkins, Mrs. Oliva, Mrs. Santaiti, Mrs. Hu, Mrs. Hariharan, and Mrs. Reyes (our International Day Committee), our many parent helpers during dance rehearsals and costume changes, our parent presenters and I-Day volunteers. The day was magical! Thank you to Mrs. Lopez-Mendez for her amazing work on organizing the publishing of our first International Cookbook! Limited supplies are left to purchase tonight for $18.
