Pleasant View PTA: The PTA Meeting is at 9 am on Monday, March 4th in the cafeteria.  The minutes from the February PTA meeting and the agenda for the March meeting are posted on our website.

World Culture Night – April 12th – VOLUNTEERS  are NEEDED to Showcase Countries

Pleasant View is excited for World Culture Night on Friday, April 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.!  World Culture Night will celebrate the diverse cultures found in countries throughout the world as well as in Pleasant View.  It is a fun-filled event emphasizing understanding, acceptance, empathy and unity.  To make this event a success, participation is needed to help showcase a country of which you are familiar.   The displays are meant to help students learn about a country’s people and places and may include:

  • Size and location of the country
  • Capital and Country Flag
  • Typical day-to-day lifestyle
  • Cultural traditions
  • Common foods of the country
  • Any interesting facts!

We would also like to showcase dances, games, foods to share, etc. from the different countries.   Both parental and children participation is encouraged, and hopefully the whole family will want to participate in creating the displays, as well as dancing, games and food preparation.   Children will be given a “Passport” as they come that night so that they can get a sticker “stamp” for each country they visit.  At the end of the night, they can show their “stamped” passports and receive a prize.

Please contact Riddhi Satturu at (563) 650-7077 or wdmsurat@gmail.com or Ana Olsen at 563-650-6689 or olsenanach@me.com if you would like to be a part of this fun event!
