High School Opening Ceremony

Monday, March 26th, A-Day

We will have a reverse assembly schedule with an Opening Ceremony Assembly in the morning.  The High School is proud to welcome His Excellency Ambassador of the United States of America Matthew H. Tueller, who will address our students at the assembly.  We are also looking forward to a Parade of Flags and a presentation of the winners of the essay-writing contest. 

Global Awareness Booths in Auditorium

Monday March 26 (A) & Tuesday, March 27 (B)

All subject areas within our curriculum will be represented in a wonderful collection of displays in the auditorium.  Students and teachers have been working since the fall to create representations of work that we do in our school with a global theme.  Classes will run on a normal schedule and students will visit the booths during their Social Studies class.

Parent Fair and Closing Ceremony

Wednesday, March 28th, A-Day

Students will attend the parent fair during their English class for about 30 minutes to sample food, interact with cultural information, play games, listen to music and share in the riches of our international community as prepared by volunteers from our parent community.  There will be a short closing ceremony at the end of the day, which will highlight the diversity of our student body.  Thanks to all of our parents and students who have participated!

We are proud of our diverse student body and all the work that our students, parents and teachers have put forth in order to make our Global Awareness Fair a success.
