STUDENT ACTIVITES: Around the World Festivities
During the week of March 9th, Prep students celebrated three days of Around The World events. ATW day one celebrated the culture of North America, South America and Australia. At noon, hula performances in the gym provided students with an exuberant display of traditional Polynesian culture. Lunch time activities included a Mexican mariachi band performing in front of the vending machine.
ATW day two celebrated Europe, Asia, and Africa. Performances in the gym included Anne Thanh Lion Dance and Gypsy Folks Ensemble. Many students also enjoyed lunch time activities, such as Fortune tellers, Reptile Island, and the Holi Festival.
The third day of ATW fell on Friday, and students gathered excitedly in the gym to watch talent show performances by friends and classmates. After 13 wonderful acts, four faculty judges engaged in heated discussions to decided who the ultimate winners would be. A special performance by Mr. Dunn and Mr. Voss lightened the gym as results were calculated. Finally, Bowen Chen received the Best Single Performance Award. My Le, Jade Luu, Vicki Luong, Vy Nguyen, and Shelly Nguyen received the Best Group Performance Award, and Yanni Zhang received the Best Overall Performance Award. Congratulations to all winners and great job with this year's ATW week!
