Primary - June 10, 2016

Jambo,

It is been a RiverRun Olympic week! We have had 5 events, this week, including cooperative games, throwing balls, running (a short and a longer distance, for which all children chose to run more than 1 lap), long jumping, and a hula hoop rolling relay. Children received certificates for these events, along with a certificate for participation and team work. Of course, their gold medals brought the most smiles and cheers! It has been wonderful to see all the children participating and their excitement to work together as a team and school! At the RiverRun Olympic Closing ceremony, the primary Kenya team shared some Swahili with everyone, by counting to 10 and singing a short peace song in both English and Swahili. The children did very well with this and will be giving an encore performance at Moving Up. Thank you to all parents who helped with and attended athletic events, our award ceremony and Opening and Closing Olympic ceremonies. We very much appreciate your support! We’ve also enjoyed a few “big” works this week, as scrubbing bins and chairs, hammering real nails into a stump, grasslands animals puzzles, and a 100 numbers puzzle. Have a restful and enjoyable weekend.

Peace to all ...Maureen, Cyndy, Leah and Devi
