SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- The Saddle River Day School's World Language Department hosted its biennial International Dinner on Friday, April 1. Members of the school community prepared and shared food from around the world.
The nations represented at the dinner included Armenia, Austria, Bahrain, Cuba, Haiti, the Philippines and South Korea, among others. The event also featured music by the school's Jazz Ensemble, directed by Arts Department chair Erick Storckman, and salsa and cha-cha dance lessons.
"The primary goal of this event was to assist students and the community as a whole in gaining knowledge about other cultures, as well as empathizing with them in order to create a more tolerant society," noted SRDS spokesman Peter Martin.
"The food was delicious and the entertainment was superb. Special thanks to those who attended and who helped in all aspects of making the event a success."
The school is also hosting its annual gala on Saturday, April 16, which will benefit the school's Global Connections curriculum. This year's theme is "Havana Nights": for all the details, click here.
