From the Principal

Classes carried the flags of their adopted countries as they marched into the cafeteria to the Olympic Theme song.
 
Students watched an Olympics "hype" video highlighting the different events at the Winter Games. School-wide, Olympic-themed activities were introduced.  
 
Our GVA-DC student-athletes recited the "Athletes Pledge" in preparation for their speed skating competitions in PE. The morning culminated in the arrival of the Olympic Torch carried by our own Ms. Erickson!!
