At the Festival of Nations
trip to Festival of Nations 
63 students went to the Festival of Nations at the Rivercentre on May 1st.  It was a collaboration with more than 80 ethnic groups which created a truly unique experience – one that celebrates cultural heritage and provides our community’s immigrants with a platform to express their stories through world-class performances, exhibits, ethnic cuisine, and personal connections.  Please send pictures that students took at the Revercentre.  I will add more pictures to the site.
Japanese students participated in the Japanese Day at the Minnesota Zoo on December 8, 2015.  21 presenters of Japanese 4 and 5 classes showed five animals at the assigned stations.  This year, we were assigned  Ringtail Lemur, Colobus Monkey, Komoto Dragon, White Cheek Gibbon and Small Clawed Otter.  Students discovered fascinating facts about these and other Zoo animals, all in Japanese. Students can visit about 40 animal stations throughout the Zoo. Upper level language students use music, costumes, and props to interpret the animal exhibits. Students each received a "passport" which gets stamped after listening to the presenter at each station. All days are geared toward language students.
