Find Out What's Happening Around Campus
Today 3rd grade celebrated the culmination of their Greek studies with Olympic Games and a feast! The students competed in “Olympic events” such as chariot races, discus, javelin and arm wrestling. Following the games, the class enjoyed a sampling of traditional Greek foods. Some class favorites were: lamb, feta, olives, figs, tzatziki, stuffed olive leaves, eggplant, and pastitsio (Greek lasagna).
The class discussed how the Greeks, although a great culture with great strength, were missing out on the thing that gave life to all these delights- their Maker! What a fun time the students had immersing themselves in history!
The third-graders worked in Language Arts to create their very own “all about me newspaper.” To celebrate the completion of this project, the class enjoyed a morning of reading each other's papers and listening to café music while enjoying treats and hot chocolate/tea in our very own “Third Grade Café.”
