International Days

Each Global Village Academy holds an International Day assembly once a month. 
The purpose? To engage and excite our students in learning the history and cultural aspects of the chosen country.

Students learn facts about the "country" of the month during daily announcements. Selected classes perform for their classmates and parents through song, dance, and short skits. Free Dress is allowed on International Days. We encourage students to dress in cultural clothing.
Celebrations will be different in the 2020-21 school year, due to COVID-19. We will let families know what activity will take place for each celebration.
