Multicultural Festival Celebrates Forest View Families
On Friday, February 21 Forest View held its annual Multicultural Festival celebrating the wonderful diversity of our school’s families. Each grade level displayed family heritage research projects around the school, and children and families talked about their native countries and languages. Festivities included a Parade of Nations, a talent show representing the cultures of Forest View’s families, a sampling of foods from around the world, and food trucks Phat Wrapz, Captain Ponchos Tacos, Bang Bang Banh Mi Vietnamese Gluten Free, and Gussy’s Greek. Big shout out to this year’s organizing committee: Marylu Flowers, Amy Davis, Linda Foreman, Sonya Schofield, Linda Seligman, Susan Heath, Evelyn Hallan, and Melanie Zimmerman. Special thanks to Sandy Colclough for playing the piano, Sneha Shah Coltrane for leading 20th anniversary events, and the PTA for sponsoring Braima Moiwai’s visit.
