On a crisp autumn evening in Southwest Denver, hundreds of families gathered at Valverde Elementary to celebrate each other at the school’s annual Multicultural Night. Whether with song and dance, art or food, families from across the world shared with each other about their holidays and cultural traditions.

“Our school really becomes the crossroads of our city, country and world,” said Hanna Franzblau, a parent and educator at Valverde. “It feels like we are writing our story, and just recognizing from each other that we’re all from so many different places, yet together.”
