SPRINT Guatemala 2013

Seattle Pacific University students learning and serving alongside local leaders in Guatemala.

Dia De Guatemala

Today at America Latina, all of the students paraded around the school to start off the celebrations for Guatemala´s Independence (Sept 15). All of the students and teachers (PreK to High School) dressed in traditional Mayan clothing, paraded the streets with flags from all over the world, and our school´s band playing! After the parade, we all returned to the main campus for an all school assembly where Los Pasitos (PreK) did a dance and La Primaria (Elementary) did a song. After the assembly, we had a giant fair full of traditional food, drinks, and treats from indigenous Guatemala. Classes continued afterwards for the middle and high schoolers where we were able to teach them American games and songs! We said goodbye to our students for the week as we prepare to go to the rural town of Chimaltenango Monday thru Wednesday! Tomorrow we are going on a surprise group trip with our hosts from American Latina to explore the city!

Dios Les Bendiga! (God Bless You!)
