International Week | February 10-14

Start Date: Thursday - February 13, 2020

International Week, a favorite annual TASIS tradition, will begin on Monday, February 10, and conclude on Friday, February 14. The week will include special events in all three divisions, including the all-school Parade of Flags*, the Elementary School's International Showcase, the MS/HS World Cup Tournaments, and the High School International Food Fair.

+ A note about parent attendance
Due to very limited space in the Palestra, parents are kindly asked not to attend the Parade of Flags on Monday. This exciting event will be filmed and posted on the TASIS YouTube channel later that day.

Parents of performers are welcome to attend the International Showcase on Friday, but we cannot guarantee everyone a seat due to limited space in the Palmer Center. This action-packed event will also be filmed and will be shared with all ES families within a day or so.

* Students may choose to wear their regular school uniforms if they do not wish to participate in the themed dress-up day.

See the full schedule of events below, and please contact International Week Coordinator Eleonora Pinton with any questions.
