Parade of Cuisines and Family Heritage Night
Join us for the 26th annual International Parade of Cuisines and our Family Heritage Celebration!
Date: TBA - Fall 2019
Time: 6 - 8 p.m.
Location: Gym at Churchill Road Elementary
In the spirit of honoring the cultural roots of ALL of our Bobcat families, we are offering five exciting activities as part of our Family Heritage Celebration program! We invite ALL Bobcat families to participate!
HERITAGE IN ME ART CRAFT AND RAFFLE
Students are encouraged to decorate the art craft template with any materials in order to represent their family heritage. This is an excellent opportunity for discussing or even researching the origin of each family. How many generations can you trace back? When did the family move to the US? What are the traditions that families have kept across the generations? What are the symbols of your family heritage?
Students must return the completed artwork to their homeroom teachers by DATE TBA. All submitted work will be shown on Family Heritage Night and the artists' names will be entered in a raffle. The raffle drawing will be held on Family Heritage Night. Students must be present to win the prize!
International Parade of Cuisines
Get ready to share and enjoy some delicious food! We'll provide the plates, cutlery, and water - you bring the food!
Bring a cultural (or any dish) to share with your name on the bottom of the dish and on the serving utensil. Note on a small card which culture the dish represents and if it contains nuts.
Suggestions for portion sizes:
Snacks: 8-10 families
Main Course: 4-5 families
Dessert: 8-10 families
Fashion and Flag Show
Showcase on the stage the traditional clothes of a culture or the flag of a country, be it of your family heritage or your personal interest. Alone or with your family, it's your time to shine on the runway on Family Heritage Night! Flags will be provided.
To perform in the show, you will need to sign up by DATE TBA and commit to rehearsal on DATE TBA. (Rehearsal will be held in the CRS gym.)
If the runway is not your cup of tea, how about a cultural performance that gives the audience an artistic presentation of the unique culture of your choosing? Singing, dancing, kung fu or others, the more the merrier!
Sign up by DATE TBA.
Commit to rehearsal on DATE TBA. (Rehearsal will be held in the CRS gym.)
What are the special artifacts that people use in their culture? How do other languages look different from English? What are children's favorite games in a particular culture?
Come and host a Cultural Booth on Family Heritage Night and introduce the culture to your visitors.
Have some time to help? We need you! We're looking for help with set-up or clean-up for the event. Check back for our volunteer form link.
