Daily Morning Celebration


With all 250+ students gathered around the perimeter of the gym, we begin by offering American students the opportunity to say the Pledge of Allegiance. We then highlight one of the flags from another country, representing some of our children at Glencairn School (a different flag is featured each week).  We all listen to that country's anthem before greeting each other by saying "Hello" in that language.  Daily announcements, the recognition of birthdays, and the singing of a beautiful "Peace Pledge" all take place prior to the close of our celebration.

Parents wishing to join us for this unique morning experience are welcome to do so!  Once the children have entered the building and gone to their classrooms, parents may go directly to the gym.
