Catching a global vibe at Lavelle was easy to do during the Multicultural Week of 2017. The school auditorium was converted into a mini United Nations featuring the food and fauna of countries around the world. Each branch of the school held its own food feast on separate days. Class exhibits featured animals such as the White lion, the Camel, the Tarsier of Southeast Asia, the Burrowing Owl from Aruba, the South American Chinchilla, Penguins and many other exciting species from around the world.
The Preschool International feast was widely attended with many parents and family members joining in to see the animal exhibit which allowed students to show off their artistic skills and share their knowledge about various animals.
The Preschool food feast included dishes such as Colombian empanadas, Filipino fruit salad, Mexican quesadillas, vegetable lo mein, noodle pudding, hummus with pita bread and baked chicken.
On the Life Skills/ Early Childhood menu were many offerings including a delicious Serbian apple strudel dessert made by Lavelle O&M instructor, Ms. Aleksandra Vacic. Other interesting dishes were pineapple tarts and a savory cheese pie also by Ms. Aleksandra.
Things got a little spicier for the Reach crowd, whose menu included yummy Indian samosas, Jerk chicken wings and Mexican tacos.
Congratulations to the students and teachers for the beautifully rendered exhibits and plethora of information!
