Our third Pike Fest will be held on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
Our third annual Pike Fest will take place on Thursday, February 20, 2020 with a snow day scheduled for Friday, February 21. We're excited for the many opportunities we'll have to work together to provide our students and community with a unique day of learning. Most of all, we are excited that you - our families - will be involved in some aspect of this day, whether it's leading a workshop, co-leading a workshop, or volunteering throughout the day.
Pike Fest gives students the opportunity to engage with globally focused arts and cultural activities. Teachers/staff/families can use this opportunity to share their culture, heritage, and/or personal passion in a format that is innovative and engaging for students.
View the complete list of workshops from Pike Fest 2019.
Workshops should have a clear cultural and/or global component, and they can be tied to any subject area: music, art, movement, math, science, literature, etc.
There are three ways you can contribute to Pike Fest:
- Lead a workshop
- Co-lead a workshop with another community member or teacher
- Volunteer to help out through the day
Faculty and staff will be participating in this event as well. They will contribute to the day's workshops and assist with programming, classroom coverage, and other support in the building.
If you know of a Pike alum who might be interested in leading a workshop this year, feel free to forward them this email or tell them to get in touch with us!
In order to sign up, please fill out the sign up form by Monday, December 9, 2019. Once we have received your information, the Pike Fest Team will be in touch with you to confirm the information you have shared with us.
We're so excited to embark on this journey with you, and we cannot wait for February 20. If you have any other questions about the event, please email the Pike Fest Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
