Multicultural Literacy Night - Family Participation is Needed

Rountree Family,


Please consider hosting a booth at our cultural awareness celebration and story time for our Multicultural Literacy Night. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 31st from 5:30-7:00pm. We need volunteers to represent the many cultures here at Rountree.


We would love to have you host a booth or volunteer to be a story reader for this special evening. We think that it is important for all our students to see the beauty and value of the diverse culture here at Rountree. Letters were sent home with your student to sign up. You can also email audra.heins@allenisd.org to sign up or retrieve further information!


Cultural presentation booths will be hall displays and will be designed by you with the help from our staff – you can have some or all of the following: small food samples, displays and decorations, artifacts, flags, pictures or art, games, gadgets, photos, short demonstrations, information flyers/pamphlets or recipes to present along with the story time.


Thank you for your consideration!
