Take Your Culture To School Day

Here at LeMarchant we are fortunate to have more than 25 different nationalities and cultures represented among our student body. With some more familiar than others, each offers a fascinating and unique perspective.

So, on February 26th, we are excited to host our first-ever Take Your Culture To School day and invite families to the school to share elements of their culture or ethnicity with other members of the school community through storytelling, food, dance, arts and the many other things that make our cultures unique.

 

Full-Day Event

Our event will be held in the gymnasium of the big school and will run from 9am to 3pm.  Stations will be set-up with tables to display artifacts and information, as well as representative food or treats. The hosts of each station will be available to answer questions, help with interactive components of the display or perhaps tell an interesting story. We also hope to have performances on the stage throughout the day.

Students and guests will be provided with a ‘passport’ where they may make notes or draw pictures of those things they find particularly interesting.

 

We Need Volunteers!!

As you can imagine an event like this will require contributions from our whole community. Right now, we are looking for volunteers who are willing to help us with understanding and experiencing, in a small way, their culture. If you are interested in contributing something and/or participating in this exciting, new event please contact Mrs. Stoilov as soon as possible!
