Celebrations Around The World - This Friday!
Join us for an evening of International festivities as we celebrate holiday traditions around the world. Come on out and enjoy samples of the different foods and culture that make up our diverse Pinetree Community. Plus, we’ll have Aztec Dancers and a visit from Santa himself!
What: Pinetree's Annual Celebrations Around the World
When: Friday, December 08, 2017
Where: Pinetree MPR - 6:00- 8:00 p.m.
This is an opportunity to celebrate and learn about the diverse population of families that make up Pinetree. We are hoping to have as many countries represented as possible. Please consider sharing your families’ heritage by hosting a table at this event!
Each country represented will be given a table to showcase their culture. We've had traditional first birthdays, Christmas, Hanukkah, just to name a few. It's up to YOU to decide which festive occasion you would like to share. We would like you to showcase things like food, games, geographical location, music, traditional clothing, etc. It is an evening filled with music, fun, and a celebration of the different cultures within our school community.
If you wish to host a table or have questions, please complete the form (link below), return it to the school office and someone will contact you.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
