Celebrating Nowruz- Activities and Events

10 Mar

For most of us, March 20th signifies the beginning of a new season, spring and a chance to look
forward to warmer weather. For many of us from countries like Iran, Afghanistan, the Kurdish regions
of Iraq, Turkey and Syria, throughout Central Asia and many more – The first day of spring is a New
Year’s Festivity, also known as Nowruz (pronounced NO-ruz). While specific traditions vary from
country to country, as different cultures add their own elements, the central theme is the same: a
celebration of spring and a time for rebirth and renewal.
In recognition of Nowruz, students and parents/guardians are invited to participate in free activities
during the month of March which focus on aspects of Nowruz traditions celebrated by different
communities. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
