Multi-Cultural Fair: February 16

At Curie's upcoming annual Multi-Cultural Fair, students will have a chance to experience many of the cultures & nationalities that are represented in our school community. Children will visit & interact with Curie volunteers at various booths showcasing a multitude of cultures, customs, & traditions.

We welcome you to be an exhibitor, a coordinator, or a tour guide & help us spread the wealth of knowledge of our international community. You don’t have to be from a specific country in order to represent it. We welcome anyone who may have an ancestry, lived abroad, or have an affiliation to a country. Please visit: to sign up today. Please respond by January 27. Booth locations are based on a first come first serve basis. Times & responsibilities are listed below.
