South Valley Students and Staff Have Lots of Fun on “Flying Around the World Day”

It was an exciting day for South Valley students traveling from Thailand to India, Samoa, and beyond, without leaving their school. During “Flying Around the World Day,” each classroom represented a different country, educating students about the culture and offering a taste of the region with food samples as well. The students traveled from country to country, visiting classrooms exploring the various country’s traditional colors, flags and clothing, giving them an opportunity to explore different cultures from around the world.

Staff played the role of pilots and flight attendants stamping passports as students traveled from one country to another inside the individual classrooms.

What a fun and engaging way for students to learn about different countries and cultures. Congratulations to everyone at South Valley for giving students such a rich and memorable experience!
