What is meaningful or special in your family? Share your story with the Chestnutwold community! Create a display that educates us about the food, hobbies, culture, rituals, celebrations, and/or activities your family enjoys. We will provide a table for each display; you provide the photos, artifacts, maps, artwork, books, or other items to help showcase your traditions. Families can do this alone or partner with other families. To have a table at the event, complete Mr. D's RSVP form (sent in his weekly email and home with students) and return it by March 22 to your child's homeroom. All families have something to share, but if you choose not to present, please come and get to know your neighbors better!
