Dear St. Cloud parents,
We hope you had a wonderful holiday and New Year! January brings Diversity Night to St. Cloud and this year promises to be even better than ever! Make sure the date is saved and join us January 20th for an incredible evening showcasing our diversity!
We’re bringing back some favorite traditions and adding some new ones to the evening. As in the past, we invite you to bring a favorite dish for families to sample. We’re adding a cookbook this year of the food brought to diversity night. Everyone who brings something will receive a free PDF of the cookbook.
Come to the night dressed in your traditional or modern ethnic clothing. Those who would like are encouraged to sign up and perform a song or dance representing their culture. Sign up flyers to volunteer, contribute a dish and perform were all sent home. They can be found on our facebook page and website as well.
Let’s not forget about the raffle baskets! This year each class is contributing one child friendly basket to be raffled. Your class parents will be reaching out to you with the details. We’re excited to see what each class creates. Show up Diversity Night and try your luck winning one or more!
Before we say goodbye to 2016 we want to congratulate Mrs. Berkowitz, our Teacher Rocks winner for December! Who will be recognized in January? You tell us! Your submissions are the heart of this program. Keep them coming and coming!
We also want to thank Rehana Desphande and Marie Sinha for chairing our holiday fair in December. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out and supported the fair. You make these givebacks possible.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and joyful 2017!
St. Cloud PTA President on behalf of the Executive Board
