Represent Your Country at Creekside Around the World

The Creekside Around the World event will be held on Thursday, February 6 from 5:30pm-7:30pm. This is a PTSA sponsored event where families learn about our school’s diversity. Different countries are represented in booths that display information about their country that includes people, places, traditions, food, sports and culture.

If you would like to represent your country, you would be responsible for:

- Preparing the information that will be displayed (guidance will be available)

- Preparing your booth by decorating it and making it fun for families to see and learn.

- Bringing food or candy to share with families so that everyone could have a taste of the flavors of your country.

- Giving information to the attendees on the day of the event and teaching them about your country.
