Needed - Presenters for Global Awareness Day on 4/26

Are you from another country?  Have you visited another country?  Have you learned about another culture and can share?  Partner with a friend if you like, and come and share with the students!
How Global Awareness Day is designed:  
Prior to Global Awareness Day, students will be given a list of countries from which they will request their "top 3" choices. Teachers will assign 3 countries for each student to visit. After a morning assembly, 12 parent volunteers will present a 15-20 minute presentation on a country in 3 sessions to 3 different groups of students. 

We need YOU:  We still need 5-6 parent volunteers (or volunteer teams) to present a country. You don't need to be from a foreign country in order to present, just pick a place that intrigues and fascinates you, or perhaps a country you've visited. You could show pictures, teach a song and/or a dance, play a game, read a book, sample a food, or teach a craft. Each session is only 15 minutes, so it doesn't have to be comprehensive.  Find a friend and do it together!
This is a fun and enriching experience for both parent volunteers and students. 
If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING to present a country or assist with the event, or if you have have any questions about the event, please contact Janet at Teach School Office 805-596-4100.

3/2 6pm-8pm Chili Cook Off and A-Buck-A-Book Sale!

It's time to get fired up for our annual Teach School Chili Cook Off! All Teach families are invited to join us Friday, March 2 from 6-8 pm in the multipurpose room.  It's a potluck, so you can bring chili to compete or bring a side.

We will be tasting chili, playing bingo and shopping for children's books at our A-Buck-A-Book Fair.

Competition chili is divided into four categories this year and chili entries must arrive by 6pm:

  • Vegetarian
  • Beef or Pork
  • Chicken or Turkey
  • People's Choice - voted with quarters/bills!

Enter your chili OR bring a side (cornbread, fruit/salad, dessert) OR help with set-up or clean-up by signing up here by Feb 26. 

This family-fun event is not a fundraiser--it's just a free & fun-filled night with our Teach community.  You do not need to compete to enjoy the fun!

Our A-Buck-A-Book sale will kick off the same evening!  Please clean out those bookshelves and donate books you've already read (4th-6th grade appropriate) the rest of this month, and fill them back up with fresh titles at the book sale!
