Some of my favorite days at our school are the International Days. Every spring our elementary students celebrate their diversity by dressing up in the traditional garb of their home country. They each bring a dish of food and they play games from around the world.
David was Michigan-ed out with his Detroit Tiger’s hat and his Michigan Awesome shirt and mug (thanks, Mom!).
Our students represent 42 different countries this year including Egypt:
Nigeria, America, Gambia:
Korea and America:
Italy and the UAE:
Here’s David and his sixth grade class:
And the entire upper elementary:
In the afternoon, the students enjoyed the international cafe!
We teachers indulged too, of course. 🙂
The lower elementary students had their International Day a week later. I adore the traditional dress from Korea. It’s so beautiful! These pint sized girls looked like perfect little dolls!
The lower elementary kiddos are just too cute! I love our school!
