rpes celebrated our diversity during Cultural Heritage Night

A special thank-you to Mohsin S. Sheikh, M.D. of Pain, Spine & Rehab Associates for generously sponsoring this event.

And a huge thank-you to Amy Trost, who did an amazing job coordinating this awesome event!


Last night’s Cultural Heritage Night featured tables from many different countries and cultures, with tons of delicious food. Some parents and students dressed in the traditional garb of their culture. Others offered trinkets, henna tattoos (a big hit) or gold (chocolate) coins.

There was a great turnout as well. Several families brought multiple generations, which made the evening extra special.
