This week we are reading the story Stone Soup and learning the vocabulary words banquet and guests among others. To enhance our understanding of these terms and other countries, we are going to have a multicultural banquet on Friday, January 13, 2012. Students may bring in store bought food or treats from a country of their choice. Please bring enough for 20 students to have a small taste. Students will get to introduce their item for the feast and then the class will have a chance to taste all items. Due to school board policy I cannot allow students to bring in food that was baked or prepared at home. I apologize for any inconvenience. Every student does not have to send something in, but students will be exposed to more cultures if more people choose to participate. If you are an approved volunteer and you would like to help with our banquet please email me. If you plan to send something in, please email me or send a note so that I know what you are planning to send. Thank you very much for your continued support.
