Dear Parents,


In celebration of our rich cultural and linguistic diversity, the 4th and 5th Grade Team is excited to announce Around the World in One Day.  We invite you to dust off your great-grandmother’s recipes, dig up your favorite childhood stories and join us on Friday, February 14th to present a piece of your culture to the children.  The students will rotate through classrooms for 20- 30 minute blocks and listen as you engage them in the beauty of your country!


Are you interested in presenting?

If so, you will have the opportunity to share your culture by:

  • Reading a book or telling a traditional story
  • Teaching a song or game
  • Sharing a favorite food item
  • Teaching about the geography and history of

your country

  • Sharing photos or videos
  • Teaching common phrases, greetings, or other words in your language
  • Other ideas?


If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form below by Wednesday, February 5th.  You may also email this information to your child’s teacher. Around the World in One Day will not be possible without your help! We thank you!
