Dark, drizzly skies could not dampen Bi-Cultural Day School’s spirit on Sunday, June 5th, as more than 200 students, faculty and parents marched in unison up New York’s Fifth Avenue in the annual Celebrate Israel Day Parade. Bi-Cultural’s parade committee of parents, Anat Chavkin, Rachel Dayan, Meg Haron and Danielle Thau prepared for months beforehand, coordinating logistics, choreography, music and all other creative elements for this event. As a result, Bi-Cultural won third place out of nearly 120 organizations for overall pageantry and design, unique to this year’s theme, Sight, Sound and Spirit, making Bi-Cultural the only school placing in the top three spots every other year for the past six years.
