International Family Fun Night

International Family Fun Night traditionally ranks as a highlight of the school year and this year's event was no exception. Families gathered at school to celebrate the diversity of cultures in our international community, expressed through clothing, food, and cultural performances. The girls in the photo above are wearing ornate dresses from South Korea.
Nipun, a fifth-grader, played his Sri Lankan drum in the talent show at International Family Fun Night. He learned traditional Sri Lankan drumming rhythms from his father.
These girls performed a Korean fan dance, which was a fabulous end to a rich evening of cultural experiences. The way the girls moved their fans in sync with the music and one another made this a gorgeous sight to behold.
