    Multicultural Day

    Dear Families,

    McKinley School is planning once again to celebrate and learn about our multiculturalism on Friday, February 21 and we need your help! Classrooms are learning about the following countries: Australia, China, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Guinea, Japan, India, Ireland, Libya, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, South Korea, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, USA, and Vietnam. If you have artifacts that we could borrow from one of these countries, please let us know below; then label it with your name and send it with your child by February 17. Please consider donating food for our students to sample from one of the countries. For example, we need items like apple pies (USA), tamales (Mexico), egg rolls, fried rice, irish soda bread, or any authentic dish that we can sample. We also need volunteers to donate their time on the day of the event. If you are able to help out in anyway, please complete the form below and return to school ASAP or email Lori Bates-Heithoff at batesheithoffl@davenportschools.org. Thank you so much for helping to make this a great learning experience for our students!
