Cultural Fair Update and Request

Cultural Fair update/details:
Sorry I haven't been able to update everyone before now. I've had a lot of people asking me the same question so I think there is some confusion about the assembly days and class days. When we have assembly days planned, we do not have regular classes on those days. It is a short day; usually just 3 hours. The other question is 'are assembly days mandatory?' I don't really know how to answer this one. I would hope that everyone would want to participate. These events are a lot of fun for the kids and it gives us a chance to come together and get to know each other better. While you don't have to be there because you are not teaching, we want you and your family there with us to share the fun. So please do come. We would miss you if you didn't.
I am going out on a limb here and asking for volunteers to step in and help me out with this event. We were a little sort with people on this committee to begin with and now Jennifer is sick so we are down to the bare minimum and could use another set of hands or two. If anyone has time to help this week, I promise your efforts will be greatly appreciated.
For this event, we will meet at BUMC at 10:00 AM in the GYM. Please sign up online for the country you want to do http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0548a5ae2eaaf85-cultural
So far I have 14 out of 28 families signed up. We really need this information to be able to prepare. So, pretty please go do that right now.
We are not going to have the kids do individual presentations. Instead we are planning some fun activities. We will need you to submit a couple of trivia questions related to your display. These can be sent to the co-op email address. The sooner you do this, the less crazy I will feel. Please and thank you!
Another idea that was passed around was to see if we can include information about how the country has contributed to the USA. This is not mandatory, but it would be so cool to see that in one place. So, if you want to do that, then it is certainly encouraged.
I would love to have everyone bring a dessert to share. It would be so cool if the desserts were themed for the countries, but if you stop at Kroger for cookies we promise you won't be judged smile emoticon We like cookies too lol
Lunch will be a brown bag it style thing. So pack a little lunch for your family and join us.
