Dinner on the Deck

On Tuesday, October 11th, Performing Arts groups provided entertainment for Compassion Club’s annual Dinner on the Deck event. It was a wonderful evening of fellowship and celebration of the Arts.

MYP Drama students wowed us with Shadow Puppetry, DP Theater students made us laugh with the improv comedy skills, and a variety of musical groups delighted audiences with their beautiful singing and playing.

Mr. Kongolo showcased his amazing pottery talents, and senior Eun Kyo Jo created a fascinating work of sand art to introduce community members to our sponsored child.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support our Arts students and Compassion International Club.
