To Parents/Guardians of 7th graders:
On Thursday, March 21 the 7th grade will hold an Asian Feast in the Lyceum with supper beginning at 6 pm. All 7th grade students and their families are invited.
The students are to choose a recipe and make it or help to make it to share from East Asian countries (China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Philippines, etc.). They may work in groups if they like (with parent approval). It is encouraged to NOT buy items ready made to bring.
A card or paper with the name of the recipe and copy of it, and the country it is from needs to be by each dish (this is also for participants to know in case of allergies). Dishes can be as simple as mixed fruit, rice, or a cake/desert. There are also various beverages and fruit juices to select.
We have cookbooks here for students to look at, and there is a world of food ideas on the Internet! (*Paper products, such as paper plates, forks, chopsticks, spoons and cups will also be needed if you cannot cook—I only ask that you check with me ahead of time so I will know what is needed. Students are reminded to take their dishes/serving utensils home that evening.
This event is highly encouraged for 7th grade students. I believe it is an experience of cultural sharing as well as a class bonding time (students and parents) that is important to participate in. This is such a special, informal time for students to try new foods and for parents to meet each other.
If you have any questions, please call me – 355-0055, ext. 129. Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to seeing you the 21st!
