Students learned about Finnish culture all week long with exhibits, demonstrations and Finnish dancing. Docents gave presentations in classrooms throughout the week. The marketplace held in the front foyer of the school was the a lot of fun for the students. Authentic items from Finland were exhibited as well as a table of Finnish pulla, a delicious bread. On Friday, the students were treated to a performance of Finnish music, dance and culture.
Cultural Arts Week at Pomfret Community School is a very popular 25 year tradition at the school. It was started in 1994 by Sally Rogers (who was one of the volunteers this year) and a committee of parents headed by Frank Aleman. PCS would like to thank the Finnish American Heritage Society for helping to bring Finland to life in the halls of the school.
