Around The World Fair

This 3rd annual event is an opportunity for students to learn about different cultures and some of the unique traditions of their fellow students.  It will be held on Saturday, January 26th at 12 PM. (note: corrected date/time)


We are in need of volunteers per country to help with planning and showcasing aspects of various country's cultures.  We are looking for people who can commit to helping in advance as well as the day of the event. Volunteers can help showcase their own country/origin but are also welcome to learn about a new country and help showcase that country.


There will be meetings at 6 PM before the Dec 5th & Jan 9th PTO meetings to provide details for planning purposes, and to go through any additional questions.  It is not required for everyone to attend both planning meetings, as emails will be sent as well.


Setup will be from 11am-12:30pm on January 27th  We are aiming to have everyone set up no later than 12:30pm.
