General Information

On Wednesday, November 27th, the SISTA, SMART and Medical Houses will host their annual Fall Food Festivals. At this event, all students and teachers from each House will be able to enjoy home-cooked meals representing the various cultures and tastes of our House members. Parents/guardians are encouraged to prepare a favorite dish large enough to feed a hungry group of students and teachers. Parents/guardians are invited to join us and enjoy the festivities as well. An “eating-time schedule” will be created shortly.
