International Navigator Night

On Tuesday, April 22, Northside held it's first International Navigator Night. This event provided an opportunity for Navigators and their families to share and learn about countries and cultures from around the world.

The event kicked off with performance in the gym that included musical and dance numbers. Afterwards, attendees could stop by the cafeteria to sample taste treats from countries around the world. Northside families also set up table displays that highlighted the many countries and cultures that are represented in our student population. The displays provided information about everyday life, special celebrations, food and clothing. Some booths even provided opportunities for attendees to work on arts and crafts projects.

The evening provided a great opportunity for learning and celebration for all!
