    Wilder International Night

    As the sun sets over Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary, the school awakens to a vibrant International Night. In early November, students and families filled the school to mingle and explore the diverse community at Wilder. The event showcased an array of cultural displays as students and parents dished out the most popular cuisines and desserts from their country of origin to sample from. Performances and demonstrations were another highlight from the evening. As part of the grand finale, the event ended with a parade where students took the stage in their country’s traditional clothing.
