Painted Sky Students Recreate Parade of Nations

Each class represented a country as they marched through the school just before opening ceremonies for the winter Olympics in Sochi on Friday.

Students at Painted Sky Elementary School did their part to kick off the winter Olympics in Sochi with a parade of nations and symbolic torch run last week.

All 1,100 students at Painted Sky Elementary School participated in the parade of nations. In addition, students who embody the spirit of the Olympic Games served as honorary torch bearers during the ceremony. These students were nominated by parents and teachers and chosen by Painted Sky staff because they represent the "Spirit of the Olympics".

During January and February, students studied mythology and the ancient Olympics, biographies of famous athletes, Olympic sports, and countries participating in the modern Olympics.

The school is hosting a variety of events and activities linked to the Olympics theme during February including a private ice skating party for parents and students that included demonstrations of speed skating, hockey, figure skating, and other ice-based Olympic events.
