On October 27, 2016 from 6 - 7 p.m. we will be having our annual International Night. Each year Brent comes together as a community to celebrate our diversity and background. There is amazing food from various countries; Friends, fellow parents, and Brent kids dressed up in saris, lederhosen, waving flags — you name it! International Night offers up a POTLUCK dinner with food from around the globe for everyone to enjoy and includes the fabulous Kid’s International Fashion Show, international dances, and more! To make this a fabulous and educational evening for our students we are asking for help with the following (please mark accordingly on this spreadsheet)
1. Since this is a potluck dinner we are asking for volunteers to make/bring a dish from any world culture. 2. We need volunteers to organize the food the evening of October 27 (i.e. putting labels on the food, organizing where the food goes) 3. We need many volunteers to bring in artifacts from various cultures and to label/organize those artifacts so our students can experience more than just a culture’s cuisine but rather learn about a culture through it’s history. 4. We need volunteers to set up as well as clean up from the event. 5. We are asking for students to be a part of the International Fashion Show by dressing in apparel from their culture as well as students and/or adults to perform music from their culture. If you are interested in helping or having your child participate in the Fashion Show or perform a cultural piece of music please email Mr. Krohn at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday October 24.
