The Pre-elementary Department of Montessori de Sagrada Familia, Inc. recently held their Family Fun Day with the young Sagradans and their families last December 13, 2022, at the MDSF Covered Courts to honor the school’s core values of sense of family and love once more and to celebrate MDSF’s founding anniversary with the theme, “From Grit to Greater Victories”. The teachers, school staff headed by the Vice-Principal, Teacher Peachy Manuel and the new Student Activity Coordinator aTeacher Rochelle Ramos helped plan and prepare all the colorful decorations for the venue, and fun booths and snacks. Sagradan Families were grouped into four (4) colors who came excitedly to the site wearing the assigned color of shirt to them. Everybody was spotted in high-spirits to try out the booths. They also brought to school some goodies to eat and took the time to share them with the teachers, co-parents and kids. What an amazing get together it was! A well-spent day that created memories to keep.
The day got even better because of the fun games offered all throughout the whole program. Those were Shooting Basketball Game – for the fathers, Balloon Relay Game – for the mothers, Water Relay – for the kids, Hula Hoop Relay and Sack Race with Obstacle – for the whole family. With emcees like Teacher Alexa, Teacher Ruth and Sir Jhieo, no one hesitated to join and participate in all the awesome games. The Pre-elementary department knew exactly how to make everybody happy and all hooked up at a time where Christmas festivities are everywhere. Indeed, a memorable celebration for our dear Sagradan families!
As believed, “A family that knows how to PLAY together has the tools to STAY together”. -Warren Farrel
The importance of bringing the Sagradan families together in this face-to-face event after years of pandemic means EVERYTHING. It has been shown in countless studies that a stable family environment has a dramatic impact on a child’s success. And whenever PLAY is present, for our young learners, learning is 100% inevitable too! Thank you teachers, parents and kids! Congratulations MDSF for another meaningful and purposeful year-ender activity where love is relentless! It’s a merry, blessed, unforgettable Family-Fun Day.
Be strengthened up and soar higher. God be with us!
