International Festival - April 20, 2017
You are invited to participate in the Porter Ridge Cluster School’s International Night! This global adventure will take place on Thursday, April 20th from 5:00-6:30pm at Poplin Elementary. Many of Poplin's students will be presenting things they have learned about other cultures during the festival along with students from other schools in the Porter Ridge cluster.
Tour the festival to: increase your family’s global awareness, learn exciting new facts about other countries and cultures, and try new foods, games, dances, and more.
We are looking for great sponsors to help by donating items, setting up cultural booths or displays, or lending any materials that may be useful to this event. We welcome all donations. If you would like to participate in any way, please contact: Beth Medlin - email@example.com
