Bunker Hill Elementary PTA - International Day Committee

International Day 2018

International Day is an annual tradition at Bunker Hill Elementary. It is a celebration of the diversity of different nations and cultures. As one of the most popular dates on our school calendar, both students and parents enthusiastically participate at this wonderful event.

However, this International Festival would not be possible without the help of its volunteers. Therefore, we would very much appreciate if you would consider offering some of your time to make this event a success. Volunteers need not be from the represented country. With the exception of food server and craft volunteer, which are needed at the same time, please consider signing up for multiple slots. Parade volunteers need to be available on both the afternoon of the walk thru and the morning of the parade.

You must be a registered volunteer with SBISD to participate. Because the process can take several weeks, please register now on the SBISD or PTA websites https://volunteer.springbranchisd.com. Registration is required by each volunteer every academic year.

The countries represented at this year's International Day are:

  • France
  • Mexico
  • China
  • Syria
  • South Africa

International Day with be held on Friday, October 26, 2018


Thank you!

Chairs: Lisa Ellingsen, Veronica Barnhill, Shanna Hetherwick, Lisa Podraza, Lauren Cole & Sarah Bunk
