Tamalada and Cultural Festival


Sign up now and join us in the cafeteria on Wednesday, November 29th from 4-7pm for one big blow out day of tamale making! We’ll be selling the tamales at the Cultural Festival as a way to raise money for the PTA.

If you’ve never made a tamale, come and learn how it’s done. If you’re a tamale-making expert, come and share your favorite techniques.

Free childcare and snacks will be provided!!!
