Grand Ridge Cultural Club
starts January, 2023
Grand Ridge Cultural Club is an optional recess program that brings in parent volunteers to share their cultural heritage and customs with hands-on activities, games and crafts from a specific country or culture.
Students have the opportunity to "visit" another country and do a short activity related to the country/culture during recess on Thursdays during our rainier months! This is a fun way for kids to get to know different areas of the world.
Hosts typically share some information about their country and play a game or do a quick activity. Hosts are reimbursed for materials they purchase for a game or activity. The PTSA has resources and posters from previous years that hosts can use if needed.
Help support a country host by signing up to volunteer during a recess date so we can have more kids participate: https://signup.com/group/4255783200102

Examples from past Cultural Club days:
- Learning about Vietnamese currency and how to make a fish out of palm leaves
- Making origami when Cultural Club visited Japan
- Looking at photos from Sweden, listening to ABBA, & making a Swedish springtime craft
