A Night to Celebr8 Diversity 2019

PS8 is hosting our annual Celebr8 Diversity Potluck on September 26th! We are looking for volunteers to bring a dish you & your family love. We are also looking for unique activities that represent your country of choice. Please include country & food/activity in the comments.

Diversity can be measured across many variables- If you are part of another unique & special group - LGBTQ, for example - think outside the box & share with us!  

Also, it would be wonderful if you would create a one-page info sheet for your country that includes (1) food/activity name; (2) country name; (3) country's flag; and (4) some facts about your country. If you need help with this, please let us know - we're happy to help!

For general questions about the party, email [email protected]

Not sure where to start? Here are some examples for you:

FOODS: Empanadas from Argentina, Pakoras from India, Enchiladas from Mexico, Injera from Africa, Pasta from Italy, Paella from Spain, Kimchee from Korea, Dumplings from Asia, Arroz con gandules from Puerto Rico.

ACTIVITIES: Henna from India, piñata games from Mexico, bead-making from Africa, Origami from Japan, face painting from any country.

Date: 09/26/2019 (Thu.)

Location: PS8 Schoolyard
