Thanks to all our families that made it out to the Grace Christian Academy annual cultural fair. We had quite the mixture of food, song, poetry, and dance as we experienced the cultures of Ireland, Israel, Papua New Guinea, Australia, United Arab Emirates, and more! Irish potatoes, hummus and pitas, Egg Drop Soup, Arepas, Banana pancakes, and fresh fruit were only a few of countless dishes that helped students and parents alike get a taste of the many different cultures represented at our fair.
Parents, extended family, and friends packed the gym to enjoy a great rendition of "O' Canada" by Preschool 3, Koala Bear poems from Pre-K 4 as they shared about Australia, Irish song and dance performed by Kindergarten, greetings from around the world by 1st grade, a reciting of the 10 commandments from 2nd grade from their studies about Israel, and a performance in Mandarin by 5th/6th grade. As a Lutheran school located in the diverse, multi-cultural city of Chicago, we know how important it is for our students to learn about the many people, places, and cultures all around the world. Cultural Fair was a great way to celebrate various cultures and showcase all of the hard work our students have done over the last several weeks. If you missed any of the fun, please check out our Facebook page for video recordings of these wonderful performances!
