MULTICULTURAL NIGHT AT BOONE! 4/16
Facts, Fun, and Food
Thursday, April 16, 2020; 5:30-7:00 p.m.
We are so excited to be planning our third annual Boone Multicultural Night! We hope that Boone families will join us as we learn about different cultures and countries represented at our school; wherever your family is from (Ireland? Guatemala? Taiwan?) and whatever your traditions are, we want to learn from you as we celebrate our diversity!
FACTS: We need families who are interested in representing their ethnic/cultural backgrounds and/or countries of origin and hosting one of the tables. Some ideas for a table are: a poster with some facts about your country or culture, a game or craft project representing your country, and/or items or photos from your country, such as traditional clothing or a flag.
FUN: We need families (adults and/or children) who are interested in performing something traditional, alone or in a group! These will be short (3-4 minutes each) and there is no need for a lot of preparation!
FOOD: We need families who are interested to bring food to share! Bring a dish that reflects your ethnic/cultural background or country of origin, or simply one of your family’s favorites! Anything is welcome, from snacks to main courses, appetizers to desserts!
PHOTOS NEEDED FOR YEARBOOK
We need lots and lots of photos from any and all school activities that you’ve attended with your students throughout this semester. Carnival, field trips, school clubs, classroom projects, etc. – We need it all! Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
ATTENTION 5TH GRADE PARENTS!
We are looking for volunteers to be on the dance committee and the graduation committee. You’ll help organize and plan the graduation party and all are welcome, regardless of schedule. Please help! Email Susan Alexander/Wilson at email@example.com for more information.
