Olympic Days is a special week for CCS students, teachers, and staff. It’s an exciting time where classes from kindergarten to sixth grade have a chance to honor God through exercise in various places on campus such as the gym, blacktop, and room C-200. Calvary Christian School’s 2014 Olympic Days took place from March 17 to Thursday, March 20. To learn more about a few of the Olympians’ experiences, we interviewed a few students and teachers. John, grade 2, said, “I liked the Soccer Kick the best out of all the activities. My team worked well with each other and we always encouraged our teammates to try again if they didn’t do so well the first time.” Griffin, in fourth grade, answered, “I enjoyed playing Bump the most, even though it was tough. Winning means doing my best.” Garrett, also a fourth grader, responded to our questions by saying, “I enjoyed the Carpet Ball Throw. To me, Olympic Days means getting active, getting healthy, and having fun!”
We asked Mr. C, “Why did you create the Olympic Days? What do you think these days mean to the students here at CCS?” After thinking for a moment, he answered, “I wanted to create a day where students could be physically active and work with each other. They leave in a positive manner in their attitude and teamwork. They also love the reward at the end – popsicles!” These representatives gave us a clear understanding of what an impact Olympic Days has at Calvary Christian School. As a whole, CCS truly enjoyed glorifying God at Olympic Days!
