Time To Have A Meaningful Adult Conversation

Peralta Elementary is full of great kids and those great kids most likely have some great parents. For many parents the daily grind leaves little time to have a meaningful adult conversation with other great parents. This Saturday, Nov. 7th, presents a unique opportunity for adults with the Diversity Dinner.

"This is a community builder and not a fundraiser. We [parents] are so busy and there is so much that we do but it is hard to have more than a two minute conversation and this is the chance to talk and let the kids run around a play," says Peralta mom Eleanor Katari and co-char of the Diversity Unity Committee.

Designed as a community builder the Diversity Dinner celebrates the wealth of cultural heritage in Rockridge and is the only event that extends to the wider community. Giving people more to talk about than their jobs, the dinner gives people a chance to talk about where they come from and what it means .

People are required to bring one pot-luck dish to share and are encourage to dress up in fancy clothes or something meaningful to their culture.

No need for a babysitter, children will be entertained with arts and crafts, a photo booth and more. The event kicks off at 4:30pm on Saturday at Peralta, food is sever at 5:30 and a dance party begins at 7. DJ Denise will be spinning the hits and you may have noticed kids making song requests already on a school yard sign up poster.

"The Diversity Dinner is great for for new people or people that may not feel well integrated into the Peralta Family," concluded Katari.

Click here for more detail on volunteering. There will also be an effort to share the bounty with a canned food drive. People are asked to bring canned goods. (Preferred items: Canned meats and fish, Low-salt soups, stews and chili, Pasta and sauce, Beans and rice, Peanut butter, Cereal, Oatmeal.)

The Kindergartners Are Coming!
