Heritage Night - March 2nd 2018
(This event has been rescheduled to Friday, March 16th)
Travel Around the World in a Day as we celebrate the diverse heritage our families bring to Haycock Elementary. Our various collective life experiences and rich cultural diversity contribute to the unique community our students enjoy every day. Come celebrate this and share with each other! As a fun bonus. Disney World has donated a family pack to be raffled at our Heritage Night so that families can extend their cultural exploration with a visit to Epcot Center (includes 4 one day entry passes which can be used any time within 2 years). All volunteers will have their name entered into the raffle for the family pack, and families may also purchase raffle tickets at the event.
In addition to attendance, you may like to show your support in one of the following ways:
Storytelling/Spoken Word: This enriching experience will take place in our library. Participants are welcome to supply their own story/poem/etc, or choose from a selection of cultural texts provided by the PTA/library.
Taste of Haycock: Families may bring a favorite dish (store-bought or homemade) to be shared in our cafeteria. Any quantity, large or small, is welcome. Chaffing dishes, plates, and napkins (etc) will be provided by our PTA. For many, this is the highlight of the Heritage Night experience!
Cultural Display: Each interested child/family will be provided a space to display the beauty of their culture. This may include a location you have visited, or even a country your child would like to learn more about. Wear traditional clothes, share maps, show off souvenirs, or compile a tri-fold poster board of your country that highlights popular tourist attractions, architecture, or special traditions.
Cultural Performances: Children & families are encouraged to share cultural experiences through song, dance, music, art, sports, or other unique traditional experiences such as teaching a skill. A Heritage Night PTA representative will contact all participants to discuss specifics such as timing/space, etc.
Heritage Night promises to be a unique and enriching experience for us all to partake in together. Thank you in advance for your contribution in helping to make this incredible community event a success!
