New for 2017: International Party on Fridays

Each year, classes are assigned to different English-speaking countries to learn more about different parts of the world. This year, students from 1st through 6th grade who visit the Hub during the third recess can earn points for their English Day country by playing board games, watching movies and TV shows, reading books, and more. The country with the most points at the end of the week is invited to a special party during Friday’s recess! Students who have exemplary participation in their English class may also receive an invitation from their teacher.

Want to see how your country is doing? Come to the Hub and look at the beads in the jars! To know which country you represent, see the chart below. Note that these are the countries for English Day 2017, so you should start learning as much as you can about your country now!

Stay tuned in the future for opportunities for students in 7th grade and above to compete and represent their countries with special recess activities.
