Your child will walk with his/her grade for the parade, irrespective of the country represented. We always have a minimum of 15 kids from every grade, every year. There will be one rehearsal for the fashion show (in April - dates will be announced soon). Every Fashion Show participant will receive a personalized sash and flag representing his/her country. Please fill out the registration form (click here for form) to reach us no later than March 27th, 2015.  Please send completed forms to the PTA Mailbox: Attention Multicultural Night.

Volunteers for setting up cultural displays/food/activities:  Everyone is welcome to volunteer, take pride in your culture.  This event enables our students to learn about different cultures, taste international cuisines and educate their friends about their heritage.  We need your participation to make this a truly international experience for our kids. The PTA is grateful to all Multicultural Night volunteers. Their efforts foster a deeper understanding of our multicultural community.  This information & registration forms are also available on the PTA website.  For any queries or for more information, please contact Chitra Maridi: chitra.maridi@gmail.com or call : 862-485-4766
