We need volunteers to…
  • Host a country (Represent your culture with pictures, artifacts, flags from your native country, etc.  Norton students love learning about places around the world! You do not need to be a native of the country- it could be a place you have visited or even a place you just are interested in and can create an engaging booth for students to visit and learn.)
  • Help teach a Native Game or Dance at the International Games Booth
  • Help students create Multicultural Crafts at the Multicultural Art Booth
  • Serve samples  at the International Café 
  • Behind-the-scenes helpers (cutting/prepping supplies, etc.) 
If interested, please contact your child’s classroom teacher, Annette Alexander at the front desk or Maria Seid 

Remember to check lost and found for missing coast, sweaters, drink bottles, etc. Things are really stacking up! All items not claimed by the last day of school will be donated to ACO.
