2017 Moody School Cultural Night!

Moody School hosted a family cultural night on November 3, 2017.  Tables representing 10 cultures were prepared by our families.  Artifacts, traditional clothing, posters, photos, cultural items and foods were available. 
"Eating around the world" was a huge hit!
Our students had the opportunity to explain their native dress and/or share words/phrases.
Families are already looking forward to next year, including our "American" ice cream bar!
Special thanks to all our families for their hard work in preparing such wonderful displays, and to our staff for their support.  We had nearly 200 people attend!
