WES’s Global Fair Turns Virtual

Did you know that the WES community comprises families from at least 34 countries around the world and dozens of states across America? As we continue to welcome the new year and celebrate our community, we want to continue our school’s tradition of celebrating the families and many different cultures, heritages, and backgrounds that make up our community. In years’ past we have celebrated this kaleidoscope of diversity at our Global Fair. In lieu of an in-person event this year, we invite you to celebrate all of the wonderful cultures and traditions our Dragons enjoy by taking part in our virtual exploration of WES family traditions.

In February, NeWES will begin posting cooking demos, cultural dance performances, art/craft projects, read-alouds, language lessons, fashion shows, music performances, and more! Every Thursday, new videos and links will be posted in the NeWES of our Dragons sharing their cultural heritage.

February is coming soon!! Start brainstorming ways to showcase your favorite family dish (gumbo, bread, best meatball recipe, etc.), dance (two-step, waltz, fist-pumping to U2’s Where the Streets Have No Name, you get the gist), break out your favorite clothing to strut the runway, start tuning your instruments, and practice rolling your “Rs” for language lessons! We look forward to celebrating what makes WES such a special place to learn and grow.

As we look to highlight what makes each WES family a special part of our community, you can sign up HERE so that your family may share a part of your family’s traditions.
