Please save the date for our annual International Day community celebration on Saturday, June 9th!
International Day is a school-wide event to celebrate the year of learning and to enjoy a picnic together as a school. The day will begin with parents and students invited to school from 10:30-11:30 to visit classrooms for activities and to see examples of work from the year. At 11:30, we will go down to the back yard behind the school for a cookout and buffet, with a DJ, live music, and activities and games for kids on the field. Money raised from this event will fund our in-school activities and celebrations, like the Halloween carnival, Salty Cats snacks, and many other events next year!
Please find below some useful information about the event:
Tickets will be on sale from May, 7th and we encourage you to purchase in advance at a reduced rate. (Children ages 3 and under are free.) All students should have received a form today. Please fill it out, include the right amount of money and send it back with your child or leave it at the secretary’s office with Rita or Marta. Your child will bring an envelope home with bracelets to wear on the day of the event. The bracelet is your ticket! Please don’t forget to write your family name and your child’s grade on the front of the envelope. Tickets will also be on sale the day of the event. Friends and family are welcome!
PLEASE PREPARE A DISH FOR OUR INTERNATIONAL BUFFET WITH A TWIST:
Bring a dish to share with everybody!
Each year we ask that you bring a dish to share for our international buffet. This year we are encouraging families to bring dishes from around the world, which will we display by region. Knowing what dishes are coming will help us set up tables in advance. We ask that your dish serve 10-15 and be prepared in advance (cut into pieces, fruits washed, etc). Dishes should be brought to the school cafeteria on the day of the event.
Please sign up on the board near the secretary’s office or online on the following link INTERNATIONAL BUFFET SIGN UP and specify the name of the dish that you intend to bring, together with the country or region it belongs to.
