We did it! On Thursday, February 11th our students celebrated 100 days of school. The students enjoyed the dress down day and the variety of activities their teachers had planned for them.
Kindergarten graduation and “stepping up” from elementary to middle school are two very important milestones for our kindergarteners and fifth graders. Despite the circumstances, we were determined to celebrate with our Spyropoulites and their families! On Monday, we cheered for our tiniest graduates as they received their diplomas during our first ever Kindergarten Graduation Drive-In! On Tuesday, we applauded our fifth graders and welcomed them to our junior high school at their Stepping Up Drive-By. Congratulations boys and girls!
On March 2nd, Καθαρά Δευτέρα, all the students and faculty of the William Spyropoulos School marked the beginning of Lent with a service in our Church. At lunch, our fabulous PTA treated our students to tasty laganes and halva, and during recess, everyone participated in flying kites, a widespread custom in Greece and Cyprus. Although the weather was sunny and warm, it wasn’t as windy as we had hoped, so getting the kites to soar high in the sky was a bit of a challenge. However, our Spyropoulites would not give up, and neither would Father Paul. Eventually we were all able to get our kites in the air! Thank you to our PTA for purchasing the kites and helping us start this beautiful new tradition at our school. Καλή Σαρακοστή!
