As we witnessed our community come together at this meaningful event, it was amazing to see how much everyone pitched in to make it a lovely, special day for our children and for our school. It was truly a day that reflected the spirit of our school, and the essence of the holiday which wasfilled with beautiful scenes of laughter, children wearing peace medallions written in different languages, many ages singing and dancing together.

We at the Berkeley Turkish School are touched by what a wonderful, conscientious and generous community we are forming.  As the saying goes “ It takes a village to raise a child,” well, we are very lucky to have crossed paths with all of you to be in the same village!!

We thank you for your kindness, your generosity, your endless support, and your lovely energy.  We also realize that we all volunteer and work this hard because we all believe in the importance of teaching and learning from our children the value of empathy, democracy and the richness that diversity brings to our lives.    With out your help, and appreciation, we could not have gotten this far.

We are also happy to announce that we made over 2200 dollars of sales! Most of all, we thank our lovely children who are our sparks of hope for a peaceful future.

Looking forward to celebrating many more festivals together,

On behalf of the Berkeley Turkish School,

Thank you.
