Multicultural Day 2018 Preview: Who will win?
March 29, 2018
This year’s Multicultural Day (MCD) will take place on Thursday, March 29. Through various events next week, students in a variety of culture clubs will showcase a culture they are proud of. The theme for this year’s MCD is “traditional versus modern,” in celebration of how various cultures at East have evolved over the years, and clubs will be judged on overall performance in the week’s events to determine an overall winner.
Teachers volunteer to become judges because they have a passion for East’s cultures and will be grading the students based on a range of categories, including booth decorations and performance. Culture clubs will be ranked from first to third place.
At the booths, the culture clubs will serve food, display exhibits and provide several activities for entertainment.
In addition to the in-school activities, MCD Parent Night will be on March 28 from 7-9 pm. This night allows parents to see the efforts their children have put in to represent their culture. Parent night acts as a dress rehearsal, as performances in front of the entire student body take place the following day.
The different cultures competing this year include the Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino and African-American Culture Clubs, as well as the Chinese Student Association (CSA), Indian Cultural Society (ICS), Breakdancing Club (BDC), the Latino Club, the German Club, the Israeli Club, and the Muslim Student Association (MSA).
Members of many of these clubs expressed high hopes of winning MCD this year:
