Passport Lunch raises hundreds for Breakthrough; African drum circle performance gets students moving (slideshow included)

Students and faculty got a taste of dozens of cultures, Feb. 23-24, during the high-school Passport Lunch and a performance from the Fenix Drum and Dance Company on the following day.

On Feb. 23 high-school advisories and language departments held the annual Passport Lunch to fundraise for Breakthrough Sacramento. Tickets for the lunch were $5 and raised $510 total. Students brought dishes, desserts and drinks from around the world.

On Feb. 24 the Fenix Drum and Dance Company performed West African, Peruvian and Caribbean rhythms in a drum circle and then led students through a dance routine in an all-school assembly.
