Friday would have been our "International Marketplace"... We were in the midst of planning and prepping for it and our students were excited to share their love for their country with YOU! Guests would have been able to sample dishes from around the world and learn facts about culture, clothing and more from our international students. Please enjoy the trip down memory lane.... let's stay strong, let's stay at home! #ispworldstars --Sabine
