One of our favorite things about Roosevelt island is the diversity. Since the school is close to the United Nations, the area has families from just about every country. To celebrate the varied heritage of the students, the school hosted an International Dinner. Families brought fabulous food from about 50 different countries, then we saw cultural performances, like the Tango, Russian stick throwing, and all sorts of other fun stuff.
