It's all Greek to Me...

Today was the bi-annual Grade 5/6 Greek Day.  After a unit learning about the ancient Greeks, the class spends a day dressed up as Greeks, eating Greek food and participating in Olympic style games, such as javelin throwing.
I cheated and sent in Fig Newtons.  Hey, there are figs in them, right?  Greeks ate those.  And I'm sure if they'd had our technology, they would have made Newtons out of them...
I'm sure they also had Greek yogurt, and Tzatziki with pita bread today.

This is why I keep these old white bedsheets around.  One more Greek Day in a couple years for Natalie, and our togas can be retired
