Japanese Students Visit GFES
Great Falls Elementary was proud to host students from Eisugakkan Elementary School in Hiroshima, Japan. All twelve student visitors were provided hospitality by host families and were also “Students for a Day at GFES”. After being welcomed by their sixth grade peers and a variety of school officials, they were celebrated in song by second grade Japanese Immersion Students. Following their version of “It’s a Small World (After All)”, which was sung in both English and in Japanese, there was an exchange of gifts as a sign of our friendship. Students then met with sixth grade buddies and attended a wide-range of classes throughout the day. The Japanese children who learn content at their school in the English language, were embedded in American culture for the day and even had a school lunch! (Pizza on Friday, of course!) This weekend, the visiting students will be attending a Washington Capitals hockey game. Special thanks to all of the teachers and parents who made this trip very special for all of our students.
