King School International Night Meeting Monday 11/12 6:30-7:00
Join us for a planning meeting for International Night tonight from 6:30 - 7:00 in the MLK Media Center!
What is International Night?
International Night is a fabulous evening of pride and celebration for the King School community. We begin with an International Potluck of delectable dishes from around the world. Then we have a Showcase of Student Performances (225 students last year!)—such as Arabic Debkeh Dance, Korean Tae Kwon Do, Guatemalan Dance, Dutch song, Thai dulcimer, American Hip-Hop, Indian bhangra dance, Chinese fan dance, and more! We also decorate the hallways with informational Country Displays and art projects for a World Tour. We also try to help with International Crafts during lunchtime enrichment that week. We are also always open to new innovative ideas!
When is International Night?
International Night will be Thursday, January 31, 2008, 6:30-8:30 pm.
How can I be a part?
If everyone does a little bit, it won't be too much work. We have this one meeting in the fall, then everything else is done by email. We need parents to organize performances—either perform a special talent with your child and/or organize/teach a group of students—dance, song, poems, music, martial arts, be creative! We also need parents or students to make informational displays about different countries or cultures. The day of the event, we will need a lot of help with setting up the potluck, clean up, Security, Parking, and the Stage Management Team. We also need technical types for the Technical Team (video simulcast and recording, microphones, make DVDs, etc.). Those who are good at crafts can do international-themed crafts during lunchtime enrichment that week. There is something to fit every schedule and talent. Everyone is welcome!
What if I can't make it to this meeting?
