nternational Heritage Day is the culmination of almost a year of effort by fourth graders at Blessed Sacrament School in Waterbury. For the annual event, students research their family tree and heritage, and then present a snapshot of the country they picked by dressing in costumes, selecting music, presenting a display, and preparing and serving traditional foods to fellow students during the day and to parents and guests in the evening. Fourth grade teacher Michele Banach got it all rolling 21 years ago, and says that it has gotten bigger every year since. (Photos by Mary Chalupsky)
