On Thursday, October 27th, the entire Haggerty Community filled the gym and cafeteria for our annual International Potluck! We had a fabulous turnout! The food was delicious and plentiful! 15 countries were represented by specific country tables - thanks to those families who brought in clothing and artifacts and interactive exhibits! Thanks to Cambridge Youth Gamelon (funded by Friends of Haggerty ) for entertaining us with their music and dance -and even hosting an instrumental "petting" zoo! The kids were so engaged in learning how to "hammer" their beautiful instruments. Our 5th graders worked hard to help support this event - spending several hours before the event to research countries, international games, and passports! At the event they helped with country tables, games and the welcome table! Thanks to the 5th grade teachers, Ms. Stewart and Ms. Faucher, for the classroom time and support! A big thank you to all the many of you who cooked, helped set-up, welcomed others, cleaned, and represented many different cultures for our community! A very big thanks also to James, our custodian, who is always here very late on these nights - putting our school back together for the morning. Any feedback on this event, please email Lissa or Carroll Magill (PTO President).
