International Dinner at the Roosevelt Island School
I wanted to invite any of your children that will be attending the International Dinner on Wednesday night, to wear costumes from their native country for a special parade and short performance number, which will be the beginning point of our entertainment numbers for the evening. ANY of the children attending the school are invited to wear clothing representing their culture and country of origin for the event!
During the event on Wednesday, the children will be invited to walk together in costume around the room/in between tables as a "parade" and end up on the stage where they will have the option to perform a small number together. They don't need to perform this little song - but if they would like to it would be wonderful to have a group of children that will be learning the words and simple actions together.
In order to practice and get as many of the children together that will want to participate in the parade, please try to attend one of the two practices (if you can come to both, that would even be better!):
Tuesday - in the school Auditorium (2nd floor)
11:50 - 12:20pm
Wednesday - at MANHATTAN PARK CLUB! (where the dinner will be)
3:00pm - 3:30pm
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Also PLEASE invite the families and children that you know will be attending the dinner to participate in the Costume Parade and performance as well. We'd love to have as many children participate as possible!
