On Sunday, February 19, our traditional Kermesse took place, where children and adults enjoyed a great family time during eight hours full of love and entertainment.
Our wonderful PTA team shone with this great event, supported by ASFC staff. It was a day by the ASFC Community for the ASFC community, carried out with great enthusiasm and joy.
The Kermesse was hosted within our American School facilities; market stalls and eating spaces were assigned, where attendees found everything from delicious sandwiches, coffee, drinks, accessories, clothing, footwear, regional sauces, beauty products and even meeting reptiles. The focus of this activity is promoting as a school the importance of supporting the economy of our parents and local businesses.
Representing one of our pillars «caring and collaborative” this year we had the participation of the DIF, Teletón and animal rescue associations: COMAFFAS and, who shared a space to jointly generate social awareness and obtain funding to continue with their important missions.
We had a lot of different great activities, we enjoyed the traditional Bulldog Soccer Tournament where male and female teams from high schools and middle schools around the city participated with the hope of winning the trophy! Parents were also participants in their special category, and the tournament ended with the trophy ceremony.
Our students from skateboarding, rollerblading, robotics, taekwondo and our orchestra academies took to the stage with demonstrations of what the students together with their coaches have been working on.
There were cheers, applause and big smiles all around during our traditional Talent Show, where students participated voluntarily demonstrating skills such as singing, dancing, writing and/or playing an instrument. We had great exhibitions from many students from kindergarten through to high school. We congratulate them for their brilliant performances and we keep encouraging all of our students to develop different talents from an early age, as well as the initiative and confidence to share what they are most passionate about.
We are so happy to be able to create an environment of love and happiness where our community can get together and have fun!
We look forward to hosting our next events. Keep an eye on our social media for more information!
