Fiesta Mexicana

I think a lot of people might dread the idea of taking out the sombrero and poncho for the twelfth time; but every year I find myself so excited to see our Dining Hall transformed into a Mexican plaza. I start singing along to "Café, Café" or clapping to the beat of "La Danza de los Viejitos." Besides looking great in a sombrero, I may have more fun than the children!

The Fourth Grade Fiesta is another time-honored GCDS tradition that integrates so many aspects of our curriculum. From social studies and geography to music, art, and language, our students combine all of these studies into a culminating activity that is intellectual, exciting, and super fun. I hope you get a sense of the enthusiasm that was present a few days ago in the GCDS plaza! Enjoy the video.
