Multicultural Night is a celebration of the international flavor of Glebe Elementary School. Did you know that Glebe students speak more than 30 different languages at home? Our annual event showcases our diverse backgrounds and gives students an opportunity to explore our world – while traveling the halls of Glebe!
Who, What, Where & When
Multicultural Night will be held February 21st from 6:30 – 8 pm.
Students “travel” from one country to the next, getting their passports stamped, and learning along the way. Their passports are a cultural scavenger hunt!
Meanwhile, in the Multipurpose Room, come and taste delicious foods from around the world.
If so inclined, please bring a special dish to share. It can be from your family or your favorite internationally flavored restaurant.

Represent a Country! Put Together a Display Table
The Multicultural Night Committee is looking for volunteers to represent countries at this year’s event. To sponsor a country, you put together a 6-foot table display that can be simple or elaborate. Most displays include posters, artifacts, books, music, or videos, etc. Some hosts bring small food items or giveaways for students. This year, our theme will be Heroes and Legends. In addition to general information about your country, we invite our country sponsors to include information about famous heroes, either from current events, history, or famous folk tales. And we encourage our students to “Be a Global Hero” as they travel their world.
Remember, you do not have to be from that country to put together a display! Some classrooms, Girls Scout or Boy Scout Troops, or just groups of families put together a display for fun as an extra learning project. Some families put together displays about places where they have lived and traveled for work.
