(Chevy Chase, MD) United Nations Day will be celebrated at the Oneness-Family School on Friday, October 27th at 10:00 a.m. at 6701 Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase, MD.  (Entrance is on West Avenue.)  Hailed as one of the largest United Nations Day celebrations in Washington, DC, students will be joined by numerous ambassadors and diplomats from embassies reaching every geographic region of the globe.  The diplomats will carry their national flag in the annual Procession of Nations.

Studying the cultures of the world has been a part of the Oneness-Family School (www.onenessfamilyschool.org), an independent Montessori school serving children ages 2 through high school, since its beginning in 1988.  Andrew Kutt, Founder and Head of School commented: “Our mission is to teach future leaders that the world is one family.  Learning does not just come from books.  It comes from interaction with the world and from engaging with the people who surround us.  While basic core skills are essential, it is equally, if not more important, that we endow our students with capacities for continued growth, learning, communication and self-awareness.”

Last year over 60 embassies participated in the United Nations Day program at the school to support the initiative and to interact with the students who present a cultural program for the guests.  The diplomats also visit the classrooms to view the displays of the countries the students are studying and enjoy an international luncheon prepared by the parents who come from some 50 different nations.
