Family Heritage Night

Posted Dec 22, 2017 | Category: Family Heritage Night

Hi, Ames World Travelers!

Ames school PTA is happy to host the 3rd annual Family Heritage Night! To celebrate our cultural diversity and to nurture our open-mindedness of different heritages, we invite everyone to celebrate Family Heritage Night together ! You can be a Participant—sharing your family’s heritage by submission of this application. Or a come as a Traveler—visiting the countries on display and getting your program stamped each time.

Our student world travelers are encouraged to work together with their parents, relatives or caregivers to create a posterboard presentation and a national flag about their family’s heritage. In addition to a poster, families may also prepare a traditional food or beverage to give out as samples. Share your family’s cultural roots by wearing traditional clothing and show it off on stage in the gymnasium!

If you do not have a display to share, don’t worry! Just join us on February 6th and use your program like a passport. Any Ames students, teachers and their family members can be world travelers and mark your countries of origin on our world map. The celebration schedule is as follows:

6:15 pm – The doors will open for families who have displays to set up first.
6:30 pm – All families can walk around to view the displays and try food or drinks from across the globe.

Please indicate in which portions of the evening your family will participate on the form below. Be as creative as
you want with your display, and let’s celebrate all of the wonderful cultural diversity that Ames has to offer!
Application for participants is due by Wednesday, Jan 31ST, 2018.
