Morgan for the Elegant English High Tea in the library. Perez for the awesome Star Wars presentation. Natalie & Stephanie for the Museum Exhibit Items. Kino & Leo for bringing Mariachi Estrella to our campus to perform. Acosta for his culture presentation. Powell, Mierky, Hoeber, Bradford & Tucker for their assistance in the Festival of Colors. Sherman, Rodriguez, Olano, Ontiveros, Morea, & Davis for the Hispanic Festival, Terry & Tucker for the problem-solving and assistance. To Sarah Martinez, Lopez, X. Gamas (folklorico was awesome!), Ancelet & Centeno for the great Fine Arts contribution to the day with sound and performances (y'all are amazing)! Special thanks to Mrs. Bradford for bringing in the Cultures Collide presenters and her assistance in making the day a success. It takes a village to make these days successful and I appreciate all the help and support that made this one amazing!

Just a note to Smosna every single IB event from awards to IB days he always takes tons of pictures and videos and put them all together. I really appreciate all of his assistance this year for this and also for partnering with me on the DI competition also fondly known as #NoFilter! Here is a link to the pictures from Culture Day.

I'm a little late getting Kudos out to Eren Lopez for opening up the school for Univision at 5:30 am Friday a week ago. Thanks Eren for all your help. Thanks also to Jeremy Thompson, Lara Raesz, Pamela Tarquinio, Allison Bivone and Meghan Dougherty for your patience and understanding when Univision took over your offices. And thanks to Michael Bergeron for use of his classroom Friday morning. Thanks to all of you that pitched in and kept order in the hallway that morning.
