2012 Panajachel Town Fair Parade
Each year, we participate in Panajachel's town fair parade and present positive messages to the community. This year, our theme was "Guatemala: pasado y presente ", or, "Guatemala: past and present." This theme was decided in part to honor the great milestone of Maya timekeeping which will be celebrated at the end of 2012. The 7th, 8th, and 9th graders of Básico as well as many parents worked hard during the week prior to the parade to create many of the elaborate props and artistic elements carried by all grades. It was also the first time we showed off our new LIFE school t-shirt design.
The theme, “Guatemala: Then and Now,” will continue to be an important theme especially in the middle school social studies classes as the year progresses. We will be planning a trip to Tikal and other historic sites with this group later in the year. Thanks to all the students, teachers, and parents who worked hard to prepare for the parade!
