Diwali Meetup - Friday, November 10
We had fun creating chalk Rangolis in front of the school. The all day light rain stopped in time for us and made for a great canvas. Thanks to those who came out.

Culture Share Evening
Friday, March 10, 2022
CFT's 2nd annual Culture Share Evening was a fantastic night celebrating our differences. Families from the CFT community hosted tables sharing a piece of their culture. We celebrated holidays such as St. Patrick's Day, Ramadan, Purim, and Passover with our Irish, Muslim and Jewish American families. A family of restaurant owners shared delicious food from Vietnam, Laos, and Lebanon. We shared in Turkish delights. Our European roots were represented with tables celebrating Italy, France, and England. We learned all about the amazing contributions Cost Rica makes to our day-to-day and shared tasty treats from Venezuela. We played games and learned things about the huge world we live in and, most importantly, we had fun together as one large community.
