Multicultural Festival 2019
This year’s Multicultural Festival will be the evening of Saturday, April 6th. The theme this year is “Music and Musical Artists”. If you’d like to host a table or participate in a dance from your country, visit this page for more information or email us the MCF team with any questions!
Help Out at Countryside:
5th Grade Understanding Our Differences: Fifth grade parents, are you starting to feel nostalgic because your child is about to move on to middle school? Wish you could spend more time in their classroom during this golden year? Here is your chance! Volunteer for Understanding Our Differences. The very last unit will occur on February 4, 9:00-11:00 a.m. The topic is Autism! Absolutely no prior knowledge is necessary – everything is scripted for you. Don’t miss this chance. Please sign up here!
Be a BOKS Trainer: The BOKS program, sponsored by the Reebok foundation, encourages kids to get out and get fit before school. Countryside has run BOKS before school for the past 7 years and is seeking new trainers. Freya Hurwitz is current lead trainer and wants to ensure the program survives when her youngest leaves Countryside in a few years. She is looking for someone who may be interested in taking it over, but maybe isn’t ready quite yet. Are you someone who would want to help out with the goal of taking over in a few years? If you’re at all curious or interested, please reach out to Freya with any questions. The program is flexible in terms of timing, days of week and number of kids.
2019 Rockin’ Raffle: The Raffle Committee seeks volunteers to obtain donations for the raffle, which will be held on April 9, 2019. In 2018, there were over 100 prizes on offer and the Committee hopes to have more this year. Volunteers are needed to contact businesses (any number is helpful and the Committee can provide a list of businesses) to request donations. Letters requesting donations are ready to be sent. If you would like to be even more involved with the raffle, that’s great too, just let us know!! The more people we have working on this, the less work each individual has to do. Also, if you have a business or know someone who does and would like to donate a prize to the raffle, please let us know. Please contact the Raffle Committee of Lori Zinner, Liz Flaig, and Rob Flaig, if you’re interested in volunteering.
Library Help Sign-Up: Helping out in the library is a fun (quick) way to see your child at school and to get to know their classmates! Sign up here and choose your child’s teacher to help out during their library period.
Hour of Code: If you are a programmer, IT professional or hobbyist, consider talking with a Countryside class about what you do or helping out with hour of code exercises this December. Email Adam Howes for more information
4th Grade Art Contest Coordinator: We are looking for a parent to help organize the annual 4th grade art contest that takes place in the spring. The winning artwork is used for the cover of the directory and the Annual Fund brochure. Email Adam Howes if you’re interested.
See our committees and events page for other ways to be involved!
