World Culture Day is a GO!

World Culture Day will take place via Zoom on Friday, June 4th from 2:00-2:45 PM.

We need volunteers to make this happen!  

Our ambassadors (you!) will bring different countries and cultures into the Zoom classroom to share 5-10 minute long presentations.  

Think about activities such as: 

  • Teaching a simple dance;  
  • Helping students learn a few words in a new language;  
  • Cooking a simple, traditional dish and sharing the recipe;  
  • Leading a coloring activity of the country’s flag or map;  
  • Sharing music or artwork;  
  • Focusing on an interesting geographic element;  
  • Discussing the animal or plant life unique to your region. 

This should be fun for volunteers and students alike!

Virtual GeoBowl 2021

The GeoBowl is a Sligo Creek tradition where teams of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders compete on their geographic knowledge. If your child is interested in participating in GeoBowl 2021, please fill out this survey. The scaled-down event will run in English only, and will focus on one continent vs. the typical two. Once we determine if there is sufficient interest, we'll provide study packets to participants (digital; hard copy upon request) and assign teams across each grade level. 


All the best,
