The International Festival, Awty’s signature event, is next month! As we celebrate this year’s country of honor, Iran, today we got to experience Chaharshanbeh Suri, the Iranian Fire Festival. During this festival, people light bonfires in the streets and jump over them as a symbolic way of purifying themselves and their surroundings.
Recently, some of our Upper School students led an interactive and fun presentation for our Kinder/GS students about overfishing.
Vive la Francophonie! Aujourd’hui, Awty a célébré la langue française et sa diversité de cultures à travers plusieurs activités.
Students Emma F. (12th), Joseph J. (12th), and James P. (11th), under the coaching of Mr. Tavakoli and Mrs. Peeran, won both the Regional Competition and the Divisional Playoff of the National High School Ethics Bowl.
Who’s ready for longer days and beautiful sunny weather? Daylight Saving Time begins tomorrow, so don’t forget to set your clocks one hour ahead tonight. Time to spring forward!
