"Taste of Penn Wynne" Celebrates Delicious Diversity

Penn Wynne Elementary School students and their families took a culinary tour around the world without having to leave the school building, thanks to the Home & School Association's "Taste of Penn Wynne" event. 

Families shared delicacies from countries and cultures which with they identify, including Armenia, Bangladesh, Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, China, Thailand and more. Students received "passports" that were stamped at each table they visited.

Posters at the tables included information about the various countries, their customs and culture. Many of the adults wore clothing representative of the countries as well. 

"Taste of Penn Wynne" is just one way the school celebrates its rich diversity, while also emphasizing how much students and their families have in common. After all, the event showed that no matter where you family may have come from, just about everyone loves to eat! #LMSDBuildingBelonging
