An Fun Annual Tradition at THES

TAMALADA (December 4) & CULTURAL FESTIVAL (December 7)

Plans are underway for Tamalada and Cultural Festival! These fun annual traditions celebrate the diversity in our school with tamale making, performances, cultural tables, and a Mercado with items for sale. We really need volunteers to help with planning this year’s events. Would you enjoy doing any of these roles? 

Cultural Tables: Host a table about YOUR family’s culture! We would love to have ALL the cultures in our school represented. 

Mercado vendors: Do you make art or crafts? You can rent a table and sell your wares!

Cultural Festival Co-Chair: work together with co-chair to organize event.

Cultural Tables Captain: help with recruiting families to host a table and organize table locations. 

Performers Captain: assist with recruiting performers and setting the time slots for entertainment. 

El Mercado Captain: assist with recruiting vendors and collecting booth rental funds.
