Multicultural Night at Wellesley Middle School
This year, on May 10th, our Wellesley elementary school students, in partnership with the World of Wellesley, will take charge of celebrating and highlighting the international cultures represented throughout PAWS, Hardy, Fisk, Bates, Upham, Sprague and Schofield schools. The first ever Wellesley Multicultural Festival 2018 will be held at the Wellesley Middle School from 5:30- 8:00 PM. Our K-5th graders and their parents will be taking the lead to share world cultures with the whole Wellesley community via hands-on demonstrations, arts and crafts, posters, food and more! Please contact your school representative Nicole Meyers (firstname.lastname@example.org) on the planning committee to volunteer. There are a variety of activities to sign on for and many hands make for light work. Please sign up ASAP so we have time to gather supplies. Some of the ideas for volunteers include:
- Food- all recipes must be nut-free and ingredients must be listed.
- Posters- create a poster about a world culture/s or possibly a story from a culture and explain in so you can talk to people about it (plan for 15- 20 minute discussion).
- Arts and Crafts- choose a art or craft project that represents your culture and explain how it relates to your culture while you show participants how to put it together (15- 20 minutes).
- Example #1: why are chopsticks important in Korean culture, how do we use them and how many grains of rice can you pick up in 20 seconds?
- Example #2: how and why are Chinese lanterns made and important? What was the story about the first lantern?
- Workshop- non arts and crafts; cultural demonstration (15- 20 minutes).
- Example: how do Liberians carry a water pot on their head and walk around without dropping it? Try it out for yourself.
Please email Nicole Meyers with the following information if you would like to volunteer!
