Virtual Annual Day
All culture and language classes show-cased their learning through fabulous presentations during a virtual Annual Day celebration on May 23rd.
We host several cultural events through out the year to bring individual families together as a community, express our creativity, tell stories, rekindle the past, entertain ourselves and fly high for the future. Youth and children participation in these events helps develop thinking skills, builds self-esteem, and improves resilience, all of which enhance cultural education.
Storytime in the Park: This will be a series of weekend storytelling events, similar to storytimes at our local libraries, aimed at children ages 3-7. These events will be held in late summer at various parks in area over weekends.
DBV Summer Social event open for public: This will be a social event with ice cream, pizza and games, similar to events many of our schools do at the beginning of the year. Event will be held in July end/August beginning.Learn More
