The World Language Culture Night is postponed until further notice.

The World Language teachers are in full swing planning our annual World Language and Culture Night. We need your help to bring the evening to life. Please see below for details about the celebration and how you can be involved!

What is World Language and Culture Night?
World Language and Culture Night, or WLACN, is the annual culmination and presentation of high school world language student research projects during a family-friendly, district-wide celebration of language and culture. The evening features over 250 exciting and unique student presentations, student music, vocal performances, community members, and a variety of on-site international food trucks. Students and teachers from both our middle and elementary schools will be joining us in this 6th annual celebration of diversity, language, art, and culture! The theme for this year’s WLACN is Language and Culture on the Move: Products, Perspectives, and Practices through Time and Place. The academic anchor this year is a depictive and original timeline with an emphasis on chronology.

What are the details?
This year's celebration will be Wednesday, March 18th from 5:00-8:00PM at the high school. Performances will be in the large gym, student presentations will be throughout the school, and special guests workshops (drum circle, capoeira, etc.) will be in the World Language hallway.

How can YOU be involved?
We need many volunteers to judge student projects and help with logistics to make the evening run smoothly. If you would like to be part of the magical evening, please fill out the Google form below.
