What a great UN Day !

UN Day is a wonderful opportunity for our parents and students to celebrate our international school. We have children and families from everywhere at ASW and teaching our children to appreciate how we are unique, while also building bridges to better understand how we are similar, is a big part of our work as educators. parents, and as citizens of the world.

The Elementary School has designed several opportunities for our children to be engaged and learning during the week of October 22:

1. On Monday, Tuesday students will share about their home countries. How this looks is dependent on what the child (with parent support or guidance) decides is important to share with the class and will vary by grade level.

  • For some children and families they will want to share a food which is important to them. For others, they might show a video, bring in an object, or demonstrate a game or dance. Teachers, working together with Homeroom Parents will provide information on how that day or days will be used for this sharing, as well as any directions around how it might best serve the needs of the particular age-group involved.

2. On Wednesday, Oct. 24, UN DAY @ ASW

  • To begin the day, we will participate in a whole-school assembly to connect our community.
  • Then, across the day, ES Teachers will help their students explore and learn about the different countries represented at ASW, as they visit the Country Tables. (The PTO is helping to make this an even richer time, by providing country stamps for each table, so our ASW Passports can be stamped.)
  • Students are encouraged to wear a traditional or national dress on this day as they will be moving around the school showing their "home country" colors!
