International Coffeehouse April 20th

What do you call an evening showcasing student talents along with a festival of foods, arts and music from around the world? Our first ever International Coffeehouse and Scholastic Book Sale.  This year we have combined two Academy traditions, International Night and Talent show Coffeehouse, into one great evening and we’ve even thrown in a Scholastic Book Fair! This evening of festivities will be held on Friday April 20th in the auditorium, Cafeteria and main atrium at The Academy of Aerospace & Engineering and The Greater Hartford Academy of Mathematics and Science building in Windsor from 5:00 pm to 9:00pm 

We would like to encourage all of our talented students to participate in the coffeehouse, whether you play an instrument, sing, juggle, tell jokes or whatever your talent is please sign up to share that talent with your friends. All you need to do is go to http://tinyurl.com/coffeehouse2018signup and sign up wit the talent you are going to do. Then keep your eyes open for more specific information.

One of the things that make this such a successful event is that our AAE students and families are always so generous in sharing the foods of their varied ethnicities and families. The dining tables are organized by world region. We ask that those who join us bring a tray of their special or favorite dish that represents their heritage to share with our community (no alcohol, please).   Also, we are asking for a copy of the recipe to be provided next to the food to ensure individuals with allergies are not negatively impacted as well as individual who have specific meat restrictions.

We would also like to encourage all to wear traditional apparel. Additionally, we are asking families to consider sharing an optional cultural activity or craft that could be shared with all (examples: Origami, henna tattooing, dance, etc.). Please email aae.nhsinternationalnight@gmail.com with details of your activity so we can ensure a fun and safe evening.    We plan on having fun activities for both the young and young at heart.

Finally, we will also be sponsoring a Scholastic Book Fair in the main Atrium. Families are encouraged to browse the books that will be available. You can also place book orders online as well if you need a little more time to make your decision. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Lili Aramli (laramli@crec.org) or Mrs. Elizabeth Sinesi (esinesi@crec.org). Please RSVP by Monday April 16th on at http://tinyurl.com/coffeehouse2018signup
