We will also have artifact tables set up so we can learn about the countries around us and craft tables which will include henna artist, origami, your name written in many different languages, and much more!! Finally, we will have performances including:

·       Arabic Debka

We invite Mitchell families to wear traditional clothing from any country, culture, heritage or a team jersey. Please no Halloween costume attire.

We look forward to celebrating the diversity that makes our school so special! Please email if you would like to contribute, volunteer, or have questions.


Additionally, Mitchell students will be creating some items in Art class based on their heritage. Please discuss your child's unique heritage with him/her in the coming weeks. It will be amazing to see the multitude of backgrounds of Mitchell School families displayed during International Night.
