Fiesta Multicultural



Our middle school students had a multicultural end of the school year fiesta.  Students prepared for this event long in advance by researching and writing an essay about their ancestral country.  Students also made the country flags, Mexican papel picado crafts and a beautiful multicultural banner to decorate the cafeteria.  Finally, they brought a splendid array of traditional foods from each country.






Muchas gracias for all the contributions.  The fiesta was fantastic!

Felices vacaciones de verano!
