Holiday Potluck Party
Renuka's Weekly Feature


The staff and students at the Pearson Adult Learning Centre work hard together, but next week, they will also have the opportunity to sing, chat, and eat together! On Thursday, December 17th, students can interact with their classmates and teachers at our holiday potluck party.

Potluck means that each student and teacher brings some food to share with others. This food can be an appetizer, a salad, a main course meal, or some dessert. Please bring enough food for eight to ten people in a serving dish along with a serving spoon. Make a label to show the ingredients of the food you bring. In order to reduce our usage of disposable (throw away) materials, please bring your own plate, cup, spoon and fork.

At the party, students will receive a copy of the “Pearson Patter,” our student newsletter. The Pearson Patter contains writing from students of all levels and includes paragraphs, essays, and poetry.

We will also be singing Christmas carols (songs) together. Do you know any? If yes, then sing along! If not, then this is your chance to learn some! Your teachers will lead you in singing. If you sing nicely, you might be lucky enough to encounter a special visitor!

Morning students should arrive for their party at 10:30 a.m. Evening students should arrive for their party at 6:30 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you at our holiday celebration! If you would like to know more about the word, "potluck," read Brad's essay, Given the Circumstances: Potluck.
