INTERNATIONAL NIGHT

INTERNATIONAL NIGHT will be Friday, May 9th from 4:30 – 8:00 pm at the Nixon kindergarten playground and lawn. Come and join other Nixon families in celebrating the diversity of our community. All kids will receive a passport that they can get stamped as they visit exciting display booths representing countries from all over the world. Your child can wear traditional clothing to be admired in a parade. There will also be live performances, music, food and drinks. Tickets for the international buffet will be sold for $5 per person, and the Fifth-Grade Activities Committee will be selling pizza, dessert and drinks.

If you would like to set up a booth representing a country, please contact Dolly Srivastava at Dolly Srivastava as soon as possible. Interested in volunteering? Please contact Rachel Wheeler at Rachel Wheeler.

In order to make our pot luck a success, please bring a dish to share. Please sign up now at goo.gl/tymrqx. Reusable, recyclable, or compostable containers are preferred, if possible.

Come have fun!
