Medina Elementary School’s World Culture Night

April 23rd, 2014 (5-7pm)


Does your family speak another language? Do you want to share your culture with other families at Medina Elementary? Do you want to learn about other countries represented at our school?

Please volunteer to participate at Medina’s International Night!

Ways to participate:

1.  Your family can host a table to teach others about your country. You can partner with another family to represent one country.

Fill your table with items from your country: traditional clothes, flags, art work, books and/or artifacts such as small statues, hats, or popular movies. 

  • Fill a poster board with pictures of your family in your country.
  • Bring a simple activity or handout that tells about something you’d like to share about your country (a game you played growing up, a symbol of your country, a simple art project such as origami, henna hand painting, calligraphy).
  • Serve a traditional food that has meaning to you. Ideas are Belgian waffles, Italian pizza, Mexican tacos, and Chinese candy

2.  Come to explore World Culture Night and travel around. You will receive a passport and you can visit other tables. You will learn about different cultures, try different food, and do art from other countries

3. Sign up to perform a traditional dance from your culture.


Interested? Fill out the sign-up sheet. Return it to the office by Friday, April 18th.
