In early April, students, faculty, and parents enjoyed the cultural immersion and fantastic food at the annual Multicultural Fair. The Parents' Association's Parents Diversity Committee (PDC) organized the event, which consists of parent-sponsored tables that showcase a country's culture, customs, and food as well as facts about the country. Plus, the Upper School Jazz Combo joined the event this year, providing Brazilian, polka, New Orleans jazz, and salsa music to accompany people as they traveled the globe.
PDC co-chairs Giovanna Barrera, Sandra Bissell, and Vivi Kulig were enthusiastic about the success of this year's event. Sandra Bissell remarked, "Diversity is at the heart of King and is why my family chose King. King gives us the opportunity to represent our culture and be proud of it." Vivi Kulig echoed this sentiment, adding, "The Multicultural Fair celebrates King's diversity. We also celebrate the unity within our diversity." Giovanna Barrera concluded, "The Multicultural Fair is a wonderful way for students to learn about their culture and about other cultures. Our amazing parent volunteers love sharing their heritage."
