Celebrating International Day

Today our school celebrated International Day.  Every grade performed a dance from a different culture around the world. We celebrate International Day every year. It has been going on for more that twenty years. It is important for students to learn about different cultures and have different experiences. Dancing is a great way for students to learn.

The dances were all different. There were dances from Spain- El Baile Del Gorila, Egypt, Ireland-Waves of Tory, Mexico- Los Viejitos, Korea, Zimbabwe, Romania- Alunelul,  and many more. It was fun to see all the costumes and all the students dancing. It takes a lot of practice to get the dances perfect but we all did our best. Parents were happy to see their children having fun.

After the performances, food was sold. They sold hotdogs, cookies, Jaritos sodas, water, and chips. Today was all about having a good time.

Some students left after the performances with their parents. Only five Classtopians stayed to the end of the day.

View of students.


  1. The dance I enjoyed was the moana dance, waves of tory, the korean dance, and El Baile De la gorilla.

  2. I think it is a good idea that we celebrate our culture with dances because that way we learn about different cultures.
