Today is the 27th of February and the day that Dominicans celebrate their independence from Haitian rule. Our preschool and kindergarten classes put on a fair this week in celebration of the holiday. Check out the Founding Fathers:
|Our Duarte, Sánchez and Mella|

Some little girls dressed up in traditional costumes and other kids played popular instruments.
