Tour the World!
For one day each year, the crossroads of the world are at 12th and Welton Streets. Travel from room to room and visit exotic places you always wanted to see. Our school will be transformed to represent various areas of the world with food, pictures, music, dance, videos, and native dress. Students from these regions are eager to tell you about life in their countries.
Shop in the international market! Sample ethnic food along the way, or stay for a lunch of global cuisine! Enjoy a variety show featuring talent from around the globe! Get first-hand cultural perspectives in the Hall of Nations! Don't miss the dramatic flair of the parade of nations!
Come along for the tour--the world is waiting!
