Birthday Party Project: Donate February 22-24

The Birthday Party Project brings joy to hundreds of homeless children each year through the magic of birthdays. As part of our community service outreach, students are encouraged to being donations for The Birthday Party Project February 22nd-24th. We will be collecting glow items such as necklaces and glasses. We need solid, plastic tablecloths (round or rectangular). We also need birthday banners, streamers, hats and blowers.

International Day is Friday, March 24th.

We will have international performances and dances by our students. Parents and families will dress up in traditional clothing to present information and food from their countries. We will have craft tables and food trucks from countries around the world.

We need family and friends to set up information about your country or a country of your lineage. You can display anything you want that is relevant to the culture you are representing. You can pass out food samples from your country or host a simple craft to demonstrate or teach at your table.
