Rountree Celebrates Our School Culture

Rountree Family,

re: Home Project

Students will be learning about the customs and traditions of families in different cultures, including their importance and how they are passed down from one generation to the next in the coming months . We are asking that you help your child at home with a family culture poster project. Poster Paper and instruction will be sent home in your child’s backpack. These wonderful posters will be displayed together as a Roadrunner school-wide culture quilt. You may be as creative as you wish, but must fit items on the provided poster paper! We hope that you enjoy working on this project together as a family.

Please return the completed project by Friday, October 11th.
