Festival Of Culture


How To Register Your Family for Cultural Festival

Wilburton Wolves speak 35 languages! Bellevue is one of the most ethnically diverse city in Washington state. We feel so proud and for us it’s very important to celebrate this diversity at our school. This year Wilburton Elementary PTA hosts Festival of Culture on January 25, 2019. During this time students research different countries and present their research at a Cultural Festival to celebrate their different cultures through authentic costumes, music, storytelling, dance, arts, international cuisine, and many other things that make cultures unique.

To prepare for this event we’ll start with building cultural groups and conducting the research in each group. Students (with the help of their parents) determine the countries their ancestors lived in before coming to United States of America; the geography of the students’ countries, along with their countries’ popular cuisine, holidays, festivals, clothing, system of education, sports, and language. Each group will prepare index cards, each card representing different topic of research (clothing, food, education, housing, holidays and festivals, popular sports, etc.), which finally will be turned into final report book to be displayed for all students, parents, and guests at the Festival of Culture.

Please sign your family if you’d like to participate. Fill the table below with both students and parents/guardians names.
