Every year, Condit Elementary holds the International Festival, also known as iFest, to celebrate students’ cultural diversity. This year's theme was flavors of the world. Kids dressed up in costumes from their country of their origin or choice. Condit families gathered to see performances and enjoy dishes prepared by parent volunteers. Committee chairs were Alicia Escamilla and Mona Sharique.
