Lido International Extravaganza: A World of Understanding

Schools and Libraries

June 11, 2013


            After weeks of studying the countries of the world, students at Long Beach School District’s Lido School celebrated their International Extravaganza, exploring the culture and customs of countries such as Brazil, Canada, England, Mexico, Peru, Spain and the United States.

This year’s celebration was titled “One World, Many Cultures, Many Thanks.” During the day, donors who contributed to Lido School’s recovery in the wake of Superstorm Sandy were the guests of honor at a musical celebration that included choral and recorder performances, a Spanish flamenco dance number and readers’ theater performances.

For the exhibition portion of the celebration, the students transformed their multipurpose room into an interactive museum, featuring exhibits representing the culture and history of countries around the world. In the evening, students repeated the entire presentation for their parents. To complete the evening festivities, parents brought foods from around the world, representing the numerous cultures that make up the Lido school community.
