As mentioned in a previous email about celebrating International Food Day (November 20), we are asking that every Collective family prepare a Family Poster with their child. These posters are to be made at home and brought to the Collective by Monday, November 16. To help facilitate this project, we have poster paper (14″ x 22″ – half size, don’t be scared!) available in the office – please stop by and take home a piece.
To make your Family Poster, please fill your poster paper with photos and/or drawings of your child, family members and ancestors, loving notes, memorabilia, images of homeland, images of food, language, flags, and anything you can think of that may reflect on the theme of heritage or family. The approach and interpretation of these posters is very open, and the project is meant to encourage conversation with your child about their family and background. Posters will be due in the office on Monday, November 16, and we will be displaying them on International Food Day for you to come in during drop-off and enjoy them with your child – and learn more about all our families here at the Collective.
Kat (Odys – Rainbow), Martha, and the Diversity Committee
P.S. If your child does not attend the Collective on Fridays, you and your child are very welcome to stop by before 9:30am on November 20th to peruse the display.
