Sanderlin Cultural Celebration

Are you ready to ‘jump up’ and have some fun?? James B. Sanderlin K-8 IB World School PTSA will host our Annual Cultural Celebration Thursday, December 1, 2022 from 6 to 8 PM. As an internationally-minded school, we annually highlight and commemorate different countries around the world.

This year our staff, students and parents have decided together to celebrate The Caribbean Islands. Through an inquiry-based teaching and learning approach, we will host activities where parents will experience learning in the same environment as their students.

The event will feature our Annual Parade of Nations where our students dress in traditional clothing from their culture. It will also highlight the culinary, art, music, literary and musical contributions of The Caribbean Culture throughout the evening.

In addition to our dinner, to help raise funds for the school, we will host a silent auction in support of the many activities, initiatives, and programs at Sanderlin. We are grateful for your support of this special event and all of these activities and look forward to seeing you there.
