CLUB INTERNACIONAL // CLUB INTERNATIONAL
... held its premier meeting in September 2009. The students who attended had a great time making "papel picado" and eating Mexican snacks to celebrate Mexican Independence Day, September 16th! We talked about our different heritages a bit and decided that we'd like to know about a wide range of countries and cultures.
So now CLUB INTERNACIONAL is exactly where many students want to be.
We learn about a country or region, create a craft and sample typical foods of that culture each time.
Students can attend once or many times during the school year.
Meetings are held Wednesdays, 2:45-3:45 P.M.
at Cutler Middle School in Room #41 with Senora Widham.
There are no dues.
There is often a guest speaker, a craft to do and some snack and beverage of the culture to enjoy.
There is always something interesting to learn about the many cultures on planet Earth!
Here's the schedule of meetings for the 2017-2018 school year:
