A heartfelt THANK YOU to each and every Sudie family that participated in our FIRST ANNUAL Around The World, The Sudie Way!


It was an incredible experience learning about the cultures of our diverse community, indulging in international cuisine and enjoying live entertainment.  Highlights included cultural games and experiences, henna tattoos, tai chi lessons, flamenco, bollywood and folklorico dancing and so much more.  

Students filled their Sudie Passports and earned house points for their participation, and all attendees went home with full hearts AND bellies. 

The Sudie PTA would like to thank all our North Texas Giving Day donors and all the participants who poured so much time and love into this event.  It would not have been possible without you!  See you next year!

Spring Picture Day
