International Fair – Thank you!

Our International Fair was held on Saturday, May 7 with over 500 Palo Verde family members in attendance! We handed out 300 passport prizes to students and siblings who visited 19 international country booths and watched amazing live performances. Everyone sampled delicious food and tried fun games and crafts from around the world, reflecting Palo Verde’s diverse community. After a 2 year hiatus, it felt so good to be back.

This event would not have been possible without the tremendous support from our parent volunteers. A huge THANK YOU to the fair chair Yael Valek and fair organizers: Suju Rajan, Abraham Bagherjeiran, Jess McClellan, and Crystal Siu.
