Dance Ensembles Perform Storybyrd
Take a moment to visualize a dancer leaping into the air as a starling taking flight, or a crane conveying an urgent message that unfolds through choreography and creative dance. Inspired by natural movement, our dancers will liven up the stage with a demonstration of their progress in technique and by expressing their stories through dance.

The Experiment in International Living will be at a table in the Atrium to answer questions
Since 1932, The Experiment in International Living has provided 3, 4, and 5-week summer abroad programs for high school students who want to connect deeply and engage meaningfully with the richness and complexities of another country. Students are challenged to explore the host country through hands-on experiences in local communities and through the lens of a specific theme.  Programs are designed to equip students not only with essential cultural and, in many cases, language skills, but also with a deeper awareness of and sensitivity to global issues shaping the diverse communities and regions we visit. Each year, hundreds of Experimenters come away from their summer abroad with invaluable new skills, connections, awareness, and knowledge to thrive—and lead—in diverse, intercultural environments.

  • Pasta sauce
  • Cereal
  • Kids’ healthy snacks (for after-school programs)

We will gather as a community on Tuesday, November 22 to hear from Wayside speakers and celebrate the spirit of generosity. Our sixth grade will sort and deliver the food to Wayside Food Programs.
