Multicultural Week &

International Taste of Enatai

Multicultural Week: March 23 - 27th
International Taste of Enatai: March 27th at 6-8pm

      

Multicultural Week at Enatai Elementary is the week-long exploration of Enatai's cultural heritage by its students.  It culminates in a night time school event inviting the Enatai staff, students, and families to Multicultural Family Night, the International Taste of Enatai!   This FREE Event celebrates the diversity of our community and focuses on Enatai families sharing their culture through food and activities.  As a special highlight, our Fashion Show features children modeling native dress from their favorite country on the Enatai Stage.  We welcome everyone to attend and to contribute!

How to Participate
1) Become Part of the Multicultural Committee. Because of the variety of activities included in our event, a Committee is needed to run it successfully.  Members take charge of efforts in Decorating, Entertainment, Fashion Show, the Food Hall, and the Activity Hall. We welcome new ideas and planners!

2) Share your culture with Enatai STUDENTS during Multicultural Week.

      

Multicultural Week allows you to share your heritage directly with the students in special activities during school hours and through family provided displays and student decorations.  For 2020 we are also bringing a mix of cultural entertainment workshops for the students to their recess! Have contacts or referrals? Email us!  Volunteer are needed to decorate the school on March 20th and to help with the our Workshops.  See how you can help at our Multicultural Volunteers Sign-up.
