Also, Madison Russian School was invited to participate in a very exciting community event — International Festival of Language and Culture Schools of Madison that will also take place on May 21st from 11 am till 2:45 pm at Goodman Community Center (149 Waubesa st. Madison, WI). As the festival unfortunately coincides with our end-of-school-year concert, we are not able to present everything our talented students and staff are capable of. However, the school will have an exhibition stand with some interactive crafts activities. Moreover, the theater group will present two dances from the play “The Flying Ship” and the school choir “Spring” will do a brief presentation for the community.
Please come and join us at this exciting event if you can!
