Multicultural Night 2019

posted Feb 5, 2019, 2:52 PM by Natasha Crompton-Dunn   [ updated Feb 5, 2019, 2:52 PM ]

PILGRIM WOOD MULTICULTURAL NIGHT

Thursday March 7th, 2019 from 5:30 to 8:00pm

WHAT IS MULTICULTURAL NIGHT?

This event is a fun and interactive experience at Pilgrim Wood where students, staff and families set up stands showcasing all of the different cultures at Pilgrim Wood. The stands represent their heritage and include the community in the fun. There are games, food, books, and so much more! If allergies are a concern for you, an ingredients list will be provided for every food or drink. All foods will be nut-free. There is no need to bring money along with you, as this year’s Multicultural Night is complementary!

DO YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE?

If you would like to participate and run a stand please complete the form below before Friday February 15th, 2019. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact Mrs. Arndt (arndtm@hdsb.ca)

FLAG REPRESENTATION

Currently the students in Mrs. Arndt’s grade 5/6 class are working on planning the events for Pilgrim Wood’s 4th annual Multicultural Night (mark your Image result for multicultural flag buntingcalendars for March 7th). We have taken inventory of all the flags that currently hung in the front hall of our school. A group of students have created a survey to find out what flags are missing. The survey lists the current flags and will only need to be completed if your flag is not there. Please click on the survey link below.
