Russell Elementary school is celebrating diversity this week by hosting International Day on Thursday! For the last couple of weeks the students have been hard at work discovering their country of origin, making flags for that country and finding native outfits to wear on Thursday. International Day will begin with the students coming to school in their native dress. During the day all students will attend an assembly about music from all around the world. At 1:15pm the students will gather by country and parade around the school in their native dress waving the flags from their country. The day will end with a Feast of Favorites in the Russell café at 6:30pm. Parents will be bringing in food from their country to share with everyone. We will also have artifacts on display from different countries along with dancers and performers. International day at Russell is sure to be a day full of culture, learning, and fun!
