In the past I commented on how many of the scholarship students, those from poorer local families, did not attend the picnic. I speculated on them not being able to bring food, etc. Well, happy to report, many of the scholarship students did make it this time. Not sure if the school encouraged everyone to attend regardless of ability to bring food, or not. Either way, it was wonderful to see the majority of students and their parents at the picnic.

|Picnics provide a space for the adults to get to know each other more.|

|I would estimate about 200 people showed up for the picnic.|
|For children, playing is the international language.|
