Come out to celebrate the diversity and multiculturalism that exists within the Aiken school community. It’s one of our favorite nights of the school year! This year we would like to enhance our international night to include more opportunities to showcase the traditions and cultures within our school community. Some examples may be teaching a dance, native to a particular country, teaching students how to write their names in a different language, sharing a book, sharing photographs, or assembling tri-boards.

 To help make this night successful and fun, we welcome your participation and contribution. Please email with the country you would like to help highlight. Once we have a list of participants we will contact you with more information.

 In order to plan our event, please contact Tina by January


Have a great week,

Amy and Tina
