About the Event
This year marks the return of Burr’s World Cultures Celebration on April 28th, 4:00-6:30. It as a joyous event and a true jewel in our school’s diversity crown. Through the imagination and creativity of host family volunteers, classrooms will be transported into the many native and ancestral countries that make up our community. In essence, the World Cultures Celebration allows our students and their families to travel the world, all without leaving the school. To make this event possible, we need your help. We have several families already signed up to host a room country including India, Greece, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, Pakistan, Mexico China, and Kenya, but we need more.
So, if you have a collection of treasured family “artifacts,” photos, an idea for a craft, songs you can teach, a simple toy you can make, etc. then you’ll be perfect! If you want to help but are not sure what to do, we can come up with ideas together. Please contact Janhavi Wadhwani or Tamika Olszewski by Tuesday, March 27th and let’s start planning our itinerary!
