Tuesday October 20th is picture day at Faith North.

Wednesday October 21, is United Nations Day here at Faith North Montessori. We look forward to this day as we celebrate the diversity of the world in which we live. In preparation for this day, your child will research their own background and heritage. Children may come dressed-up in a costume of their heritage or a culture they find interesting. No Halloween costumes.

As we study families and communities, we understand that food plays a major role in every culture. We will discuss family traditions and traditional foods we may eat at different times. It would be nice if each child bring in something to share with classmates. It can be a favorite recipe derived from your child’s heritage, perhaps something made for special occasions, holiday or just family dinners. Please include a piece of paper with the child’s name, the name of the food, its origin, when your family eats it, or why it is a favorite.
Please label each dish with your name and include any necessary serving utensils.
We will be participating in the parade around the courtyard at 11:00 and then going back to the classroom to sample foods. Parents are welcome to attend.

Thank you so much
