UPDATE: The International Fair was a success! Thank you so much to our event coordinators Sashi Sreekanth, Minhwa Cho, Omer Awan, Catherine Crawford and Shefali Shah Chong! Also a special thanks to Mrs. Carr for supplying our reception with student art. We couldn’t have done it without the support of Mrs. Buell, Dr. Falk and our head custodian Victor Fallas! Please visit our FB page to see photos of the event.
