Registration will open at 8:15. The program will wrap up a little after noon.
World Appreciation Day features a variety of hands-on, internationally-focused activities. The goal of this program is to draw attention to and encourage an appreciation of some of the cultural, linguistic, historical, and other riches that different countries contribute to the global community.
There is no charge for schools to participate in World Appreciation Day and some financial assistance to help defray transportation costs may be available. Each school may bring up to 30 students, though it may be possible for higher student numbers to be accommodated.
