    This Year's Cultural Festival

    Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who helped make the Cultural Festival such a success.  We had ten amazing "houses" where guests could explore and engage in a variety of cultures and geographical locales.  Our Middle School students also shared work they completed about Archaeological Theft.   It is always so wonderful to see our community coming together to celebrate each other's traditions, heritage, and cultures.  The drum circle with Greg Cole further united our guests and gave opportunity for students, parents, caregivers, and staff to unite through music and African drumming.
