Thanks for a great day!!

On April 22nd, RIS friends and families gathered together for the third annual International Day.  The day was a huge success thanks to the generous support and participation of the parents, students and staff.
 A special thanks to Mrs. Rashmi Gupta and her International Day committee for their preparations and organization of the day.  The day began with a celebration of diversity where students from twenty-three countries participated in the parade of nations.

Following the parade, thanks to the abundance of food provided by families from sixteen countries; students were able to sample a variety of delicacies from around the world.
In the afternoon students took a trip around the globe, as they travelled to the country booths.  They experienced the culture and traditions of Pakistan, India, Panama, Chile, Brazil, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Oman, Turkey and Korea.
A special thanks to the parents and Embassies for volunteering their time and effort throughout the day.  Everyone then gathered in the auditorium for the multicultural performances by students and friends of RIS.
The festivities were greatly enjoyed by the RIS community and again many thanks to everyone for celebrating multiculturalism at RIS!!
