Covington School students and their families snacked on samosas, collected stamps in specially made passports, learned about other cultures and watched a colorful array of musical and dance performances May 5 at the school’s bustling Multicultural Fair.

Flags fluttered above parent-manned booths representing countries from Indonesia to Moldova, and bright, multisensory displays helped students learn about other parts of the world.
