Escondido Elementary students, faculty and staff, parents, and community members recently celebrated the school's annual "Parade of Nations."
Every year, the school celebrates the rich and diverse cultural backgrounds of Escondido students that bring life to the school's motto of "Friends Around the World." In the morning, students were invited to wear cultural attire and march with the country flag with which they identify. This is preceded by song and dance performances by individual students and whole classes. In the evening, the school community celebrated the "International Fair" with entertainment, food, and country information tables hosted by Escondido families.
