Intercultural Night 
Dear Community,
Registration for Intercultural Dinner and Talent Show has closed. We thank everyone for registering. Now that we know how many people plan to attend, we are ordering all the needed supplies for this amazing event. Please look out for communications for food contributors. There will also be reminders to get your checks, cash, or online payments completed. We thank all the volunteers who will be making this great event run smoothly.
This event is so successful because we all like to eat each other's cuisines. Food is one of our common languages. So, even though you have indicated you will not bring food on the registration, if you are able to bring food, it is not too late. Please email us at [email protected] and we will send you a food contributor form.  
We look forward to reconnecting with you all very soon.

Intercultural Dinner Planning Committee,
Francine Conway, Ami Das, Amy Branahl, Claire Chen, Dorothy Elfring, Maya Gemer, Susan Lovell, Aimee Macmahon, Jing Miao, Swathi Mothkur, Neepa Patel, Melissa Schiffman, Annie Shen, Jina Song and Patty Varona, & Maya Vasudevan

District Magnet
There will be a table at the November 18 Intercultural Night where you can purchase a custom magnet! You can also opt to pay online at the Avoca Webstore (3.56% processing fee) or by cash or check (Memo: Viking Fund) to your school’s front office. All proceeds benefit the Viking Fund. Thank you to those who have already donated.
