Back to High School Night

Our Back to High School Night that we hosted last night was a wonderful success. Our classrooms and hallways were filled with parents who enjoyed being a student again and sitting in on their child's classes. It was exciting to see so many of our parents at this event. Thank you to our teachers for the time they put into preparing for our Back to High School Night, and for sharing their joy with our parents.

This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic.

In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools — without getting on a plane. Each child's story starts in poverty but ends in hope.
