Roots and Community is a valued tradition at the Children's School as it allows us to celebrate our diversity and share our cultures with each other. For many years, we have been able to gather together in person to honor these differences. In the past, we have had more than 20 groups represented (ex. Japan, LGBTQIA+, Jewish Heritage, the Dominican Republic, Italy, China, France, Jamaica, Mexico, etc.) This year, we are excited to welcome back a potluck component to this event. There will also be world musical performers.
We are excited to plan for an in-person Roots and Community Event on Saturday November 19th, 2022, 5:30-8:00PM (location: Gym) at 512 Carroll Street. We are seeking more communities to be represented at a table! Tabling an event can include making a craft, displaying information, playing games and/or sharing special food items/dishes. In the past we have had origami, interactive worksheets, making rainbow flags and we welcome your creative ideas for sharing your unique culture!
