Geneva third grade students participated in the annual Greek Week as they brought history to life from their studies of Ancient Greece and mythology. The celebration included Olympic Games which featured contests like the shot put and javelin throw. The winners were awarded olive wreaths.
“Students have the opportunity to read amazing books and dive deep into history to see how God’s truth prevails,” third grade teacher Jennifer Wilson said.
The grand finale of the week was an assembly in which students presented the Greek gods and goddesses they were assigned and dressed in costumes portraying these characters. It was followed by a Banquet on Mt. Olympus where they sampled Greek foods and presented information they researched about the gods and goddesses they portrayed.
