Hoover PTA is excited to welcome Hoover’s International Festival back in-person, on campus, as a lunchtime activity on Wednesday, April 20th. Since it will be during school hours, only volunteers will be allowed on campus so consider volunteering to be a part of the festivities.

 

Please let me know if you're interested in presenting your culture but it isn't listed below so that I can add it. Please also let me know if you have any questions.

 

Cultural Stations

  • Teach students about your culture through one or more brief. activities (e.g., presentation, demonstration, lesson, game, craft)
  • Keep it simple, short, child-friendly,  positive, and fun
  • You are welcome to recruit more volunteers to support your station 
  • Each culture will be given a small budget to support its station
  • No food is allowed at stations; PTA will be providing a goody bag with international snacks to go home
  • Please let me know if you need a table for your station and the color of the table cover your committee would like
  • Set up will be 11am-12:00pm depending on how much time your station needs
  • Students will visit stations during lunch, 12-1pm 
  • Students can be involved in presenting the culture during lunch (e.g., singing, music, or dance performance) 
  • Students will each be given a passport and you will be given a stamp; please stamp the passports of students who visit your station

Cookbook

The Hoover International Cookbook is a digital cookbook started last year with recipes shared by Hoover families. Families are invited to once again add to the cookbook with recipes from their or another culture. Volunteers are needed too invite and remind families to submit recipes and clean up the format of submissions.

 

Thank you in advance for sharing your culture with students!
