Mexican Fiesta Details

Our Dance
Our students will be dancing a baile folklórico dance called la Raspa that originates in the eastern Mexican state of Veracruz. Below is a youtube video of the dance. 

Will they have costumes? What do they need to wear?

Yes, we will have costumes!!
Girls (12 in class): A few lovely mommies are sewing 12 long skirts so the girls will wear those. Please have them wear shorts underneath! They will need a plain white shirt or blouse to wear with it. Their hair needs to be braided during the day on Thursday- it’s going to be beautiful! 
Boys (11 boys): The boys will all have sombreros (please purchase those) and colorful belts/cummerbunds. They will need to wear dark slacks and a white button up shirt if possible.
Booths and Volunteering!
Our class is in charge of 2 booths: the Nacho Booth and the Soccer Game. We will be selling Nachos with Srta. Smith's class so we will be sharing those jobs with her parents. 
A form will be sent out tomorrow with the jobs that our class is responsible for! Below that, there is a donations list for the ingredients we need to make nachos. If you prefer to donate $10 rather than take a trip to Costco/Walmart, that would be fine too! Just note your name with a $ next to it so we know that item will be paid for- and maybe I can recruit someone to do the shopping :)
Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or other ways you would like to help. I am looking forward to an amazing event!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Thank you for submitting your Parent-Teacher Conference forms. Please turn them in this week if you
haven't done so already. Your confirmation with your scheduled day and time will go out this week so look for it in your child's blue daily folder. I'm looking forward to discussing your child's progress in the dual language program this quarter.
