Dear Parents and Students,

Every year at AIS we celebrate International Day. This year Pre-K- KG2 will be celebrating International Day on Thursday, December 8th. The rest of the Elementary, Middle and High School will be celebrating in January.

KG International Day activities will include a dance assembly, participating in sports from different cultures, creating art connected with different regions on the world, and trying different international foods.

We are asking you to help out with our International Day celebrations in a few different ways.

Volunteers:

We are looking for chaperones to move around with our class (along with the teacher and TA) to each of the region areas and help engage the students in the various art and sport activities.

We are looking for up to four volunteers from 8:00-1:00 p.m..

Please let me know if you would like to volunteer. If more than 4 parents offer to volunteer, the 4 volunteers will be chosen based on who replied first.

Decorations:

We would like to decorate four areas of the school to represent each of the four regions- Asia and the Middle East; Africa; Europe; and North/South America and Australia. If you have anything you could lend us for the day or donate we would love to incorporate them.

  • Decorations may be items such as fabrics, artwork, photo or other decor items
  • Please remember that this is a flag-free celebration
  • Label your items so they can be returned to you

Please contact me to let me know what decorations you are able to lend or donate.

Paper Towel and Toilet Paper Rolls:

One of our International Day activities is using empty paper towel or toilet aper tubes to make South American rain sticks. Please send one clean, recycled paper towel or toilet paper tube for your child by Sunday, December 4th.  

Food:

Our KG International Day celebrations will be divided into 4 regions of the world- Asia and the Middle East; Africa; Europe; and North/South America and Australia. This year, each class is having their own individual food party, so we are asking you to donate food for our class so that the students can try and enjoy foods from a variety of regions and cultures.

Please note the following:

  • ALL FOOD MUST BE NUT FREE – to ensure a safe celebration for everyone, we all food must be made without nuts. This includes foods with Nutella and hazelnuts.
  • If possible, please make the food easily shareable by having it cut into small pieces or separated into individual servings.
  • We only need enough food to share with our own class (18 students).

To ensure that we have a variety of food which is representative of all region, please sign up for which food you will be able to provide. A sign-up sheet will be posted outside our class room under our bulletin board, starting the morning of Sunday, November 27th. Only one parent may sign-up to bring one food item.

  • If you have anything special you would like to provide, which is not on the list, please ask me.

Thank you for your help and support in making this a fantastic International Day for our KG students!

All the best,

Miss Lizz and Mrs. Cilia
