The International Festival will be on Saturday, March 16th. Each grade will sponsor a basket to be raffled off at the end of the event as an easy and fun way to raise funds for school enrichment. Please consider helping the Kindergarten, even in a small way. Small donations can add up to some incredible baskets!
Please bring all donations to school by Friday, March 8th.
The Kindergarten has been assigned Africa! There are many regions and territories making up Eastern, Northern, Middle, Southern and Western Africa. Each of these has its own demographic, cultural and geographical makeup.
This means there are many things to include in our Africa themed basket. Here are some ideas to get you started, but feel free to donate anything Africa related. Cash donations are also welcome as it will allow us to pool the money to buy some bigger items for the basket.
- Science kits: many important scientific and technological developments originated in South Africa such as the first human to human heart transplant
Chocolate: Ghana is second largest producer of cocoa in the world
Books: Children's books based on stories from African countries, cookbooks
Instruments used in different African countries
Gift certificates to local restaurants featuring African food
Stuffed animal, puzzles, arts and crafts depicting African animals, toys
Movies set in Africa
