With our diverse student body, home visits are paramount in bridging cultural gaps that might exist. These visits also provide opportunities for staff to understand their students better by visiting them in their home environments. The goal is to foster a true partnership - with both students and their families.
Please join us on April 13th for our district-wide, annual Multicultural Festival that celebrates and connects the many cultures that are represented at Frontier Schools. Our diverse student body draws from more than 10 countries - this is something to celebrate! The event is meant to capture and create community by encouraging people to learn from each other while sharing tradition and culture.
While the Festival takes place all in one evening, preparing and getting ready for the hundreds of students, families, and community members that come takes months. Our staff, students, and families work very hard preparing their country booths, performances, and eclectic dishes. Country booths are designed to highlight the country's flag, traditions, celebrations, foods, dress and notable art. This fun and exciting event is guaranteed to have something for everyone, including: music, dance, poetry, art, games, and an abundance of authentic foods representing diverse cultures.
We hope to see you there!
