Ecuador, Italy, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, and Turkey
We are so excited to welcome back International Day for your students this year! It’s going to look a little different though. Here’s what we have planned for a fun and festive International Day!
Let’s dress up! Kids are welcome to choose ANY country they’d like to honor and dress in the local/traditional clothing. Students should arrive at school already wearing their costume. We’ll be snapping lots of photos throughout the day.
Time to celebrate! This will be a feast for the senses. Students will start their day making passports and decorating bags that they’ll use to gather tasty, prepackaged food booth samples “trick or treat” style as well as gather their crafts. This joyful day will continue with live music performances: a steel drum band featuring the sounds of Trinidad & Tobago and a brass band presenting Italian music. Also, Houston’s Ballet Folklorico is sending a video of Ecuadorian dancing! Finally, students will participate in hands-on crafting, trivia, games, and stories.
This year we will feature the following foods at each food booth for your child to taste.
These will be individually packaged and served “trick or treat” style.
***Please review the ingredients carefully and discuss with your child what they may or may not sample.***
Also, please plan to send a sack lunch with your child as they will eat in their classrooms or open areas where possible.

Please note: Due to campus construction and ongoing COVID concerns there will not be a parade or choir performance this year. Only parent volunteers will be allowed on campus for this event. Some activities will take place in homeroom classrooms throughout the day. When students meet for live performances and food booths they will be grouped by grade levels and/or rotation groups. The committee strongly encourages students to bring masks to wear during larger group activities. We plan to utilize outdoor spaces as much as possible, but will gather in the cafeteria in case of inclement weather.
More details will follow closer to the date. In the meantime, please help us get your students excited to dress up and enjoy this beloved BHE event!
