Thank you, thank you for such a wonderful International Food Day! It was incredible to see all the sharing,excitement, and enjoyment as families looked at the amazing family posters together in the morning; the children gathered before lunch for a beautiful Collective assembly during which they listened to “Yoko” by Rosemary Wells and sang songs for one another; and then indulged in a special lunch of their classmates’ (and their own) favorite family foods with accompanying stories. It was a wonderful way to learn more about all our friends here at the Collective – and to share in our special community. Thank you for making these marvelous posters with your children and for bringing such delicious foods to share. And a very heartfelt thank you to all our parent volunteers – this day couldn’t have happened without you.
