Lowell Gym & Cafe
Join the PTO as we celebrate our school's cultural diversity. The gym is set up as a multicultural meca, where students are able to walk around and "visit" different countries and learn about their culture. Each student gets a passport, and as they visit each table, they gets a sticker to show they have been to the table. The tables are created by our own school families.
Can I participate? Any family that would like to have their country represented is welcome. We provide a table, and you would decorate it with flags, maps, posters, clothing, anything that would showcase the country and it's culture.
Potluck: After the tour of the tables, everyone joins in the cafe for a wonderful potluck dinner to sample fare from other countries. We ask that everyone coming whether they host a table or not bring a dish to share.
We are also asking for donations of paper plates, napkins or water bottles.
The countries represented past years':
Argentina, Australia, Dominican Republic, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Namibia, Palestine, Russia, Senegal, Switzerland,
Who do I contact to participate? If you would like to host a table, or if you'd like to volunteer to help out during the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
