Around the world in Turner
Athena Bean, right, a first grader at Turner Primary School, adjusts her flag from India as it blows in the wind outside the school Wednesday afternoon at the end of Around the World Day celebration. Each class at the school adopted a country at the beginning of the year, learning all about it throughout the year. During the past two weeks, the classes have decorated their rooms and hallways throughout the school. On Thursday, each class made presentations for the others with facts, stories, videos, songs and other ethnic scenarios. At the end of the day, the entire school paraded outside, many dressed in their adopted countries styles and sang songs. The popular program has been going on for over a dozen years. At left is Emily Martin, holding the Irish flag and Ashlyn Neiley, holding the Russian Flag. All three are first graders.
