the greek olympics

In 3rd grade in a classical education the students study the history of the Roman and Greek empires. At Providence Hall last year the 3rd grade had a greek olympic day. the rest of the school thought it looked like such fun they wanted to join this time!

the morning started with pita and honey and opening ceremonies. shortly after they
"let the games begin!"
3rd grade boys foot race (with noah as their biggest cheerleader on the sideline)

there were chariot races, discus throws, and javelin competitions.

after a morning full of activity the 3rd graders got to have a special greek feast...

beautiful decor, laurel crowns, and greek costumes awaited the students
Mr. Broughton and the third grade class
Ari and the other two warriors
the children and parents feasted on gyros, hummus, tabbouleh, pita, and of course baklava! it was a very fun and memorable day in the life of my little greek olympian.
