International Dinner Night


Dear Masterman Community,

On Thursday, January 17, 2019, from 6 – 8PM, our school will be hosting the Annual International (Potluck) Dinner Night. RSVPs are now closed.

It has been tradition for families to bring a dish that spotlights their cultural heritage. If you already responded, we encourage you to bring an international dish, or a dish you love to make and share!  Please create a label for your dish that lists the ingredients to accommodate those with allergies.

We also invite you to share some history about your culture or dish.  We have a robust program planned including a parent giving a presentation on immigration issues, 2 student groups and a solo dancer performing. Jaya Ramji-Nogales, who is a law professor at Temple and an expert on international immigration (and also a Masterman mom), has agreed to be our speaker! We also have student couples from the junior class dancing salsa and merengue, Masterman’s Desi Organization of South Asians performing to a 3-minute song and Laura Shin a 10th grader performing a Korean Fan Dance. 

We also have games and other activities planned.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
