Families are Invited to our Class Holiday Party, a Multicultural Feast on Tuesday, December 13, 2016
Room 17 Multicultural Speeches and Potluck Luncheon
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 13th from 10:30-12:15. We are asking each family to share a cultural food your family enjoys during any holiday time during the year for our Multicultural Potluck Luncheon (enough for 25 people). We hope to make this an "International Culinary Feast" so students can learn about their own heritage and learn about recipes passed down from their ancestors. Students will be making speeches and designing a "Quilt Square" about family holiday traditions for homework due on Monday, December 12th. We will get started on this project in class and I will send home specific directions with the students so they can add personal family details at home with your guidance.
Please sign up on the link below if you are able to send in or bring food for the feast.
Please RSVP with the number of family members who are able to come to our party on the sign up chart.
If you are unable to connect to the link, please email me with the information and I will add it to the chart. It's best to balance the types of foods so we don't have all desserts!
No nuts please due to allergies.
P.S. It is a busy time of the year. If you don't have time to make something homemade,
please feel free to purchase something representing a family tradition or favorite dish.
(i.e. mini hot dogs and macaroni and cheese are well liked by our students)
