International Fair 2019

Dear Briones families, we are looking forward to seeing all of you for our annual International Fair on Sunday March 24 from 1 to 4PM. We have lots in store for you!

Come and celebrate the diversity that makes Juana Briones so special! Host a table about your country, make a dish for our delicious international potluck, or participate in the international costume parade. This is an opportunity to share your culture with everyone in the school and learn about other cultures from around the world.

In addition to the food and the country tables, we are hoping many students and parents will sign up for the international costume parade and performance! Parents and children are welcome to perform!

We will also be celebrating the Indian festival of Holi starting at 3:30PM. Everyone participating in the Holi festivities will play with dry food-grade colors and will need a change of clothes and you will need towels to cover your vehicle seats on your way home. Everyone participating will also need to shower at home afterwards.
