CIVIL RIGHTS & AMENDMENTS
We are hosting the annual Foreign Language Spoken Contest this year at Jackson Primary Campus on Saturday, April 27th from 8:30-12:00. We urgently need your students' help as Ambassadors during the contest. The Ambassadors are responsible, helpful 5th graders who are willing to help us greet, usher and work the registration desk. The ambassadors will escort groups of contestants to and from their competition locations (classrooms) and greet students from different schools and their parents, provide information about locations around the school ( registration desk, bathrooms, languages and such) If your student is available to help with the logistics of the contest and meet new friends we would love you to register them on the following form. If they have siblings ( older ones ) who would like to help out please register them too. Regards and Merci!!! Each volunteering ambassador will receive a French treat bag from Mesdames Cira and Herndon.
Patricia and Stephanie (Foreign Language Department)
PS. We will be making oversized FLES posters to display around the school during the contest to make it colorful and internationally global. If your student would like to participate in creating those banners and posters please contact Mme Cira to volunteer. Merci!!!
