PS 99Q hosts our own Parade of Nations!

Last evening, the PA hosted the annual World Festival to the delight of students and their families and friends. Everyone had a great time! A total of 18 countries were represented in our “Parade of Nations,” highlighting the great diversity of our student population. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.

A big thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that helped set up the decorations in the auditorium, and serve the delicious world cuisine in the cafeteria! Also a big thank you for all who shared the yummy international food! Everyone left with their hearts and bellies full!

A parent was kind enough to create a mini highlight video of the performances. Enjoy!
