 Hello DFS parents

Thank you to all who participated in the cultural survey. Data will be collected and incorporated into the monthly calendar, morning announcements, and the cultural display cabinet.

Every month, the cultural display is updated to reflect the holidays and celebration in that month.

We are calling families that would like to loan/donate what they use to celebrate and decorate for their holidays.

November is coming up and it is recognized as the

National American Native month.

We would love to hear from families with native American heritage , if they can share items used for holidays celebration and also help with writing up a morning announcement incorporating greeting from one of the native languages.

For the month of November or any other month, holiday, or occasion please reach out to Mergima Al Arnaout
