Travel Around the World!

Our Sanborn School population reflects heritages from countries around the globe.  As a school community, we value the opportunity to showcase and experience this diversity firsthand. Sanborn Around the World Night is a new Sanborn event!

Date: Wednesday, March 13th
Time: 6:00PM – 8:00PM
Location: Sanborn School 

Ever wanted to travel the world? Grab your free boarding pass and take flight. Sanborn Around the World Night will be an opportunity for students, staff and families to embark on a journey and experience cultural activities that are representative of our school.

Students and their families will first pass through Customs, where they will receive their passports and choose four destinations to visit during the evening. These 15-minute International Experiences (located throughout the school) could range from making a Chinese paper lantern, to listening to a famous Indian folktale, to playing a popular Brazilian sport, to tossing potatoes while learning about the Irish Potato Famine.

Deadline to sign-up is March 6th!  

Experiences - 20 slots
Each experience host will conduct a 15-minute activity four-times, starting at 6:15 PM and ending at 7:30 PM.

Guests will rotate throughout the school at 15-minute intervals. We anticipate a maximum of 15 guests per activity during each of the four rotations, for a maximum total of 60 guests attending any given session throughout the course of the night. Each host will have their own classroom, with audio/visual capabilities. Activity ideas include a craft, story, game, learning a language, costume, skit, music, and beyond.
