PTO Sponsored Multicultural Potluck

The PTO is hosting a Multicultural Potluck on Tuesday, March 19 from 5:30-7:30 pm. We are encouraging families to bring a dish that represents their family’s culture. Favorites from previous Multicultural Potlucks have included samosas, sushi, rice and beans, spaghetti, lasagna, slow cooker meals, and burritos.

Please bring serving utensils and list ingredients so the entire community can learn more about the food. Your dish should be enough for 10-12 people. Dessert, drinks, and entertainment will be provided.

We would like everyone who is interested to be able to attend. If you are not able to bring a potluck dish to the event, you can make a donation to the SES Office to help the PTO with food and supplies for the event or bring a dish from one of the local restaurants.

We hope your family can join us for this fun, delicious community event!

If you are planning to bring a dish, please fill out the SignUpGenius form:

Thanks!

Our PTO is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our school community. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all. Money raised will be used for PTO/School events.

Please submit a few of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook. Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success. We are using the Morris Press Cookbook’s web site to easily submit recipes online. If you do not have Internet access, our committee can enter them for you. Submit hard copies of your recipes to Mary Karen Crawford @ SES front office. 

Please submit your recipes online by    March 26th    so we can meet our deadline in time for Mother’s Day!
