Rooftop’s 13th Annual International Festival is approaching – this Friday April 27th. This is a wonderful celebration of the whole Rooftop community with performances created by students from all grades and food and participation of our generous parents from every culture of our diverse family!

Parents, this is the LAST CALL to please send in food for this wonderful celebration! You can use this online form to give us an idea of what food we have to serve the kids.

The festival is a full day affair, with food booths filled with international home cooking, and a lively show. To start we always have one or 2 professional acts. This year we have the fabulous FREEZE who bring us improv hip hop, and we have our past student Adam Traore, now a rapper vocalist. Students have been alerted to start preparing their acts. We also have an art contest, winners to be announced at the event! (see attachments). Our theme this year is Expression: Self, Family, Community with a special emphasis that this is ROOFTOP’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY!

Please send one of your family dishes to share with the children this friday. All the kids are so proud of the home made dishes that their family bring to this day of celebration! We set the table with foods and flavors from all our diverse cultures that represent our wonderful Rooftop community! The students look forward especially to that special feeling of knowing, our whole bigger family helped to make this celebration so meaningful, accepting, and yummy!

Thank you parents for joining in our International Festival!
