Multicultural Night

Dear Fry families, we cordially invite you to this year’s Multicultural Night on Thursday, January 25th, from 6-8 pm. 

Themed Travel Around the Globe, this exciting event is a wonderful opportunity for our students and families to learn about different countries and cultures firsthand from our worldwide diverse community. 

Multicultural Night is a volunteer-run event, and we kindly invite families to sign up and represent their respective cultures. 

We look forward to a memorable evening filled with cultural exchange, fun activities, and delicious food. We encourage all families to attend and participate. Let us foster curiosity about different cultures and appreciation for our diversity.
