1960's Party Project Wiki

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you may know from your students, the 9/10 Team is currently working on a 1960s themed party, which will be held on May 3 at the school. Students are currently studying the 1960s in Social Studies, including Politics, Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, and Society (this last being the focus of the party). Through this project students are learning and using research skills, presentation skills, and group dynamics, all of which are important elements of our curricula.

Students have signed up for groups based on their own interests, and you are welcome to see their progression on our 1960s Party Wiki, which is on The Crefeld School home page under Social Studies. Groups include Fashion, Arts and Literature, Dance and Music, Guest Coordinators, and Catering. Students will be presenting the information they found through multi-media, hosting a fashion show, will be performing live music, and will be catering lunch for the entire team. We are looking forward to an entertaining, educational, and fun day.

By now you are probably wondering how you can help. As always, we hope you are discussing the topics your students are studying and asking them questions. The fashion group will be presenting a pamphlet of “What to Wear,” and if you could help your students put together a “groovy” ‘60s outfit, that would be great. Finally, the catering team has put together a list of supplies that they need in order to prepare lunch for the entire team. If you could take a look at the list (attached) and sign up for an item or two, that would be terrific. You can send the sign up sheet in with your student to give to Tori or you can respond to this email with your selection. We will post the sign up sheet on the wiki and fill it in as items are filled. (Note: any non-perishables can certainly be sent in ahead of time!)

Thank you for all of your support,

Gena, Lisa, Rick, and Tori
