International Celebration - Save the Date and Sign up to Participate!

International Celebration is a beloved tradition at Angell and a wonderful opportunity to bring families together to celebrate our diverse community. This year’s International Celebration will take place at Angell on Thursday, April 25 from 6 to 8pm.  


Family involvement is essential for making this a great event!  We would love to have at least one representative from each country from which we have students.  


Participation can be as simple as wearing traditional clothing to the event.  To represent your country, or support us in other ways for that evening, please complete the survey.  Thank you to the families who have already signed up. So far, we have representatives for Australia, Brazil, China, India, Italy, Singapore, Jamaica, Korea, Nigeria, Serbia and South Korea.  We would welcome the involvement of more representatives for each country, so please don’t hesitate to sign up if your country is on the list!

REMINDERS:

MOVING HOMES?
If you’ve recently moved, or have plans to move in the near future, please reach out to Mrs. Reid, school secretary at reidj@a2schools.org.   We need to update address information, and we want to support families with the in-district transfer (IDT) enrollment process so we can retain our Angell Eagles.  The window for IDT requests will likely open in late February/early March and we don’t want anyone to miss the deadline.
