The Outdoor Classroom provided a beautiful setting for our students to 'travel' around the world and learn about the languages, geography, music, arts, foods, history, architecture, sports, products, holidays, games, clothing, inventions, flags, and more of the countries represented in the SCES student body.


Thanks too to Ms. Nesmith, Mme. Thompson, Mr. Espinal and the staff for their enthusiastic support for making World Culture Day a reality this year and, of course, to all the 4th and 5th graders whose vibrant, creative posters helped to decorate our school for this event.


Finally, World Culture Day could not have happened without the dedication of so many volunteers who helped in all ways big and small. Thank you:


Farah Nageer Kanthor 

who put many, many hours of work into ensuring that every little detail was considered to make this event delightful for students, presenters, and volunteers alike. Thank you so much for your dedicated leadership.
