Asia Day

Every year, sixth-graders complete an extensive study of Asia and its countries that culminates in Asia Day, a hands-on, daylong lesson that celebrates countries like China, South Korea, and India. Middle School geography teacher and Dean of Students Andy McGarvey spearheaded the event. Throughout the day, students participated in a variety of activities, including a kung fu demo from Blue Ash Shaolin Dojo. Students also learned about henna, Asian board games, cricket, and yoga. Upper and Middle School Chinese teacher Mia Wu taught a lesson about China. The day ended with a celebration of Holi, an Indian festival that welcomes the arrival of spring. Sixth-graders gathered on the basketball court to throw handfuls of colored powder in the air for one final cultural lesson.
