Hoover PTA welcomes

Hoover students and their family 

on campus for the International Festival

 Saturday, April 20th from 2-4pm

 

Let’s come together as a community to celebrate our shared humanity and embrace the beauty of cultural diversity.
 

Please sign up to volunteer to share your culture or any culture of interest by April 8th.

And let us know if the culture isn't listed below so that we can add it.   

 

Cultural Stations

  • Goal: Teach students about a culture through one or more brief activities (e.g., presentation, demonstration, lesson, game, craft)
    • Keep it simple, short, child-friendly,  positive, and fun
  • Volunteers: You are welcome to recruit more volunteers to support your station. Deadlines April 8th.
    • Students can also volunteer (just add their name when you provide your email)
    • Please appoint one person to be the coordinator for the culture and indicate this in the email field
    • Please have volunteers sign up below so that all can be recognized
    • Volunteers can continue to sign up even if the sign up says all openings have been filled
  • Budget: Each culture will be allocated a small budget to support your station.  It will be managed by the lead of the culture.
  • Table: You will be assigned one lunch table. You welcome to decorate the table and area around it; 
    • Pease keep in mind that if you will be using a trifold presentation board, you will need to secure (e.g., on bench and taped to table) since and wind will move it. 
    • Electricity: There are no electrical outlets outside

      • Please fully charge any electronics

      • If you require electricity, please bring extension cords and let us know asap so that we can request that the closest classroom is unlocked to provide your access to an outlet

      • Wifi: You can connect to PAUSD guest wifi but we cannot guarantee that it will be stable or provide enough bandwidth

  • Give Aways: You are welcome to hand out materials, small give aways, and treats if you would like but it is optional.
    • Individually packaged food items is easiest, please keep it nut-free and label what it is
  • Set Up / Clean Up: Set up will be 1-2pm and clean up will be 4-4:30pm depending on how much time your station needs:
    • Each culture will be responsible for the set up and clean up of their area
    • Please have your area cleared by 4:30pm

Cultural Performances

  • Students and families are welcome to present a cultural performance or demonstration during the event (e.g., singing, music/instrument(s), dance, sport, skill),
  • Please sign up for a slot and let us know the culture and activity
  • Please have everyone involved in that time slot sign up so that all can be recognized
    • They can continue to sign up even if the sign up says all openings have been filled

Flags

  • Please sign up to help put up and take down the flags around campus-many hands make light work!

Thank you in advance for sharing cultures with students!
