Thank you!

Our annual Multicultural Festival was a huge success!!!  Thank you to all theflags parents/countries who participated this year.  Between snow storms and jam packed school events we had a wonderful turn out of parents who came in bright and early and set up their tables and were eager and happy to spend the day educating our wonderful students on their culture.  We had the luxury of visiting Greece, Italy, Korea, Ecuador, India, Taiwan, Uruguay and China in our school today and it was a blast for all!
