Independence Day Celebrations!

The students and staff at the Acorn Childcare Center had a uplifting celebration of Guatemalan Independence Day, a national celebration of Guatemalan culture! Wearing their traje típico they celebrated at school with music and dancing.

We know how important it is that children learn about, celebrate and take pride in their indigenous culture. The children decorated with national symbols including Guatemala’s national bird, El Quetzal, Guatemala’s national flower, Monja Blanca, and Guatemala’s flag and coat of arms. And of coursed danced to the sounds of Guatemala’s traditional instrument, the Marimba. How special it feels to be able to celebrate together again after a few years where that has not been possible!
