The American School celebrated Polish Independence Day on Thursday, November 9. The day ended with the presentation of a show that was performed by our 4th grade students under the direction of Kasia Pawłóczenko, Zuzia Gałkowska, Gosia Niwińska, and Basia Marcinkowska. The No-Name Choir, under the direction of Ms. Marcinkowska, was also on hand to provide the songs for the show.
The show was a spectacular success, and all of the elements were amazing: the costumes were eye-catching and authentic; the sets were detailed and attractive; the choreography was elaborate, precise, and exciting; and the acting of our young actors and singing of our singers was wonderful.
Clearly, a great deal of hard work went into making this production the success it was. Kudos to the adults and children who so generously gave of their time and talent in putting together this rousing, fun, and patriotic pageant.

This year, our teachers decided that rather than receive flowers, candy, or other gifts for Teachers’ Day, they would prefer that families donate money for someone in need.
Due to the generosity of our families, over 3,500 PLN was raised.
With this money, we purchased a laptop computer for a young boy, Nikodem, who suffers from an auto-immune disease. We became aware of this child through Fundacja Mam Marzenie.
Thank you to all of our American School teachers, families, and students for their kindness and generosity.
