Culturama - Presenters Needed!

On the evening of Friday, April 20th, 2018, we hope to fill the cafeteria again to the brim with yummy foods, cultural artifacts, talented acts, and a colorful fashion show.

Culturama works best when we have lots of participation, so we would love for all of our CRES community to be represented! Multiple families and scouting groups can also team up to represent a country, too!


Some ways you can be involved:

  • Displays- Display a poster, artifacts, pictures, activities, crafts, games or anything that will educate us about your country
  • Foods - Bring a savory or sweet food dish from your country for our international "tasting" menu
  • Fashion Show - Dress in traditional clothing from your country to showcase in our cultural fashion show
  • Talent - Perform a dance, song, talent, martial art, or acrobatic routine for our cultural talent show (be wowed by our diverse and talented CRES students!)

Volunteer at CRES

We'll have lots of fun ways to get involved at CRES this year - watch this space for more information as volunteer opportunities become available.


Food Rescue Volunteers - Just a 12-minute drive from CRES, the Cornerstones Emergency Self-Sufficiency Services program helps fight hunger right here in Northern Virginia. Each day at lunch, CRES students collect leftover, unopened food and beverages from lunch to donate.

We need parent volunteers to deliver the rescued food every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of the school year. Unfortunately, a small number of volunteers has been shouldering much of the delivery duties so far this year. Please sign up to help with an occasional delivery if you can fit it into your schedule. For more information please contact Tonia Powell, the CRES Food Rescue coordinator, at tonia@bradandtonia.com or 703.201.1922.
