Julian Curtiss School celebrated United Nations Day on Thursday, and it was a beautiful, sunny day for the annual parade of nations. UN Day at JC was created 27 years ago by former JC principal Nancy Carbone.

Originally the students participated in the parade carrying paper flags from their countries. The flags are fancier today, but the spirit is the same.

Student arrive at Julian Curtiss from other countries, not always speaking English. But at JC, they learn.
