Carrie Busey Elementary School’s International Night

On March 5, Stephanie Porter (REEEC Outreach and Programming Coordinator) participated in Carrie Busey Elementary School’s International Night, along with the other area studies centers’ outreach staff. At the REEEC table, students made paper matryoshka dolls and played with the dolls from REEEC’s collection. They especially enjoyed taking the dolls apart and finding the tiny doll inside. In addition to the REEEC table, the students and their parents (some wearing the traditional clothing from their countries of origin) enjoyed visiting other tables representing different countries, making crafts, and sampling foods. There was even a performance of dances and music from around the world. Everyone had a lot of fun and is looking forward to next year’s International Night!
