    Fourth Graders Celebrate Flavors of the World

    Fourth-graders celebrated the first ever Flavors of the World Festival on Monday, April 23. Put together by Lower School Spanish Teachers Gaby Booth and Natasha Hatcher, Flavors of the World was a celebration of the amazing food that our diverse and beautiful planet has to offer. “It also provides a fantastic opportunity to bridge community and cultural diversity,” Booth said. View the Flavors of the World Slide Show

    Parents and teachers were asked to volunteer to showcase a dish – an appetizer, an entrée or a dessert – from their family’s country of origin or another country they may have a connection with. View the slide show here. The students were then given the opportunity to taste these dishes from around the world. After the tastings, the students spent time filling out a form where they could check off what they tried and then provide their thoughts about the food they sampled.
