Meyer Middle School seventh graders presented a Festival of Nations on Thursday, May 29, in the school gym. After months of research the students created display boards, gave out food samples and dressed in native costumes. Elisa Putzier (shown) said she picked Nepal because she used to do a dance that was native to that area. She said the most interesting thing she learned was that most of Nepal’s land consists of mountains. She is the daughter of John and Shelly Putzier.
