The Olympic Celebration began with a paradeof countries! The school had a flag for every country represented at the school (I think close to 40!) and every child walked with the flag of his or her country wearing something to represent their homeland. It was a truly impressive sight!
United States of America! We had some very good representatives!
Of Course Cowboys, Mickey Mouse and Uncle Sams!
I love how we ended with Abraham Lincoln and the Statue of Liberty!
This was truly an impressive parade! All done to Olympic Music - such a festive atmosphere!
The students gathered with their fellow countrymen and to line up on the field with all the flags.
But the celebration didn't end there. Each classroom represented a different country and the children were given some time to tour each class and sample food from the country, play games and experience a little bit of the difference countries. The school also allowed the parents to accompany their children. But when that was over, we had a little bit more celebrating to do!
Here is Craig, in his classroom. They are looking at a world map to see where Craig will be moving next. California seems like a long ways away from Malaysia!
