Festival of Nations a Tremendous Success
From our 5th grade teacher, Mr. Kuhlmann:
On Friday, January 8th, Beard Elementary hosted its 2016 Festival of Nations. The event was a tremendous success as over 40 families, representing nearly 20 different countries, gathered to share their unique customs and traditions.
The halls were packed with community members sampling food from across the globe and being entertained by several very talented students, both past and present, from Beard.
Over the 10 years of its existence, Festival of Nations (formerly known as the Cultural Fair) has become a staple for our community. I would like to thank all the hard work our presenters put in to make this night so special and everyone who came out to support this event; our community is truly one of a kind.
We are always looking to expand this event, so if you and your family are interested in participating by representing your country’s heritage, be on the lookout for information coming home late next fall.
