Bike Safety Thank You

Join us as at the Peirce International Festival

Friday, May 3, 2019 6:00-8:00pm

Peirce’s International Festival introduces students to world cultures and allows Peirce families to share their own heritage and traditions. This event can only be a success with your help–we hope that you’ll consider participating in one or more of the following ways:

  • Create a cultural table! Families are encouraged to set up a table that promotes and helps students explore a particular culture. Tables can feature games, art activities, local alphabets, stories, images and trivia related to your or a culture that you’re passionate about. Participating students will be encouraged to complete a scavenger hunt by visiting each table.

  • Perform! Prepare a song or dance that highlights an international cultural tradition–students and parents are welcome to take the stage! The performance portion of the event will begin at 6:45pm.

  • Cook! Bring a dessert to share for the intercultural potluck. Please, no nuts! The dessert portion of the evening will begin at 7:30pm.

  • Create a mosaic tile highlighting your Arlington culture! The fabric of our Arlington culture is woven from the cultures of our individual families and ancestors. What does your Arlington culture look like from your perspective? How do the separate parts of this culture come together? Students are encouraged to draw a representation of that culture (materials and additional instructions will be provided at school) that will help build a community mosaic that will be presented at the international festival. Materials to make tiles will be sent home immediately after April break and must be returned on Monday, April 29. We would love to have EVERY family represented with a tile on our school mosaic!

We will also need volunteers to set up and staff the event and provide other necessary materials–check out this Signup Genius for more details about volunteer opportunities!

Questions? Ask Cris Martin!
