The Chapel Hill community to celebrate EUROPE DAY at Smith Middle School
May 8, 2014 | 4:00-7:30 pm | Smith Middle School, 9201 Seawell School Rd, Chapel Hill, NC
May is an important month for remembrance, celebration and appreciation for visionaries who have made our world peaceful and more secure. As a school community Smith Middle School will celebrate Europe Day, which commemorates the Schuman Declaration on May 9, 1950, thereby creating the foundations of the European Union. On May 8th, in appreciation for their service in France and Belgium, we will honor two visiting World War II veterans who fought so bravely to bring war to an end in May 69 years ago. We are deeply grateful to the visionaries of the EU who created the “Getting to Know Europe” grant which has impacted hundreds of students and teachers by awarding Smith Middle School the grant four times since 2007. Our Europe Day celebration has been largely funded through this grant.
We will celebrate by enjoying European food booths such as Parlez-vous crepe, croque-monsieurs from Provence, mediterranean treats and good ol’ Italian pizza as well as EU birthday cake. We will hold up signs exclaiming “UNITED IN DIVERSITY” in 23 languages during our Walk for Unity, followed by European presentations (academic and cultural) in the auditorium. Come early to watch middle school teams battle for the Euro-Mania jeopardy championship in the auditorium.
