Cultural Events

Penobscot School recognizes that language learning extends beyond the bounds of the language itself. The school therefore offers an extensive array of cultural events throughout the year intended to broaden perspectives by bringing global-minded people together. Check our events page often for updates to our changing list of stimulating activities including ethnic meals, lectures, films, speakers, and demonstrations. Registration for many events may be done online. We look forward to seeing you!

Also,  see our ongoing  Free Virtual “Language Lunches”, a discussion format allows for language learners of all levels to participate.
