As part of our study of ancient Greece, students will compete in the Greek Pentathlon Games along with students from other local schools. This is the day students demonstrate the grace, beauty, and form they have been practicing all year. At the closing ceremony, students will be asked to reflect on a moment of grace and beauty, and will be awarded a matching medal.
