Mrs. Gourlay's Class Goes Global
Anastasia Holevas came to talk about the anniversary of the battle of the Greeks and the Turks. The Greeks were under Turkish rule for 400 years! Her son, George dressed as a Greek boy from long ago for the children to see. He shared the Greek names of the costume. She also showed the children a map of Greece, pictures, and more stories. Anastasia also brought some Greek cookies and chocolates for the children to taste. She gave each child a card with their name written in Greek. The children loved learning about Greece and trying the different sweets.
