Every Fall,the week before Halloween, Montessori House (the girls’ Elementary Shool) has a program and potluck lunch to celebrate International Children’s Day.
The preschool-1st grade kids dress up in costumes of children around the world. The elementary class usually wear their School t-shirts with jeans although this year they wore white graduation gowns.
They then parade around the parents while “it’s a Small World” is played. here’s some of the cute little kids in costumes…

after the parade, they all stand together and sing a few songs. (one of which is always “love grows round in a circle and comes back knocking on your front door.”
then the little kids sit with their families while the elementary class sings a couple songs.
after the program we have a potluck feast of food from around the world. (sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the food. )
