International Showcase 2022 – 2023

November 4 2022 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

This popular event celebrates the diversity of our CDM community! 

Bring a traditional or family favorite dish to share (8-10 servings), enjoy crafts, displays and entertainment and learn something new about the various cultural backgrounds of our students and their families! Everyone is encouraged to wear traditional attire to represent their heritage. This is a free PTA-sponsored and organized event.

We are looking for parents who are willing to put together a showcase. Responsibilities include setting up a table representing your country on Friday evening (4:30 pm) before the event and then manning your table during the entire event (5:30-7.30pm). Details on setup/presentation will be sent out to those who sign up. The families will “tour the world” visiting each table and learning something about that country. If you would like to join a country group or can add another country to the event, please we would be thrilled.

Please contact by Wednesday October 19, 2022.

Contact Susanne Volk at or Ariane Paris at to sign-up to create a showcase.
