The countdown to Sochi 2014 is on and All Saints Catholic School got into the Olympic spirit with their own Winter Games on Wednesday morning.
Linda Dunn, Principal at All Saints Catholic School said, "This is Catholic Schools Week and the theme for Catholic School Week is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. Since it is an Olympic year, we decided that we would include in our Social Studies curriculum this week the Olympics."
From the Opening Ceremony to bobsled races and floor hockey, students at All Saints learned the importance of community and sportsmanship.
"We're trying to build community here as a school and have the school come together the way the world comes together at the Olympics,"said Matt DePaolo, Physical Education Teacher at All Saints Catholic School. "We're keeping that same philosophy, have the school come together and unite for a good cause which is sportsmanship."
Thomas, a third grader at All Saints said, "This is the first time I've ever done something like this. I like the bobsledding"
"It's the first time we're doing it at the school and our class participates and some of our friends carry the flags," said Kristina, a third grader at All Saints.
Students also created Olympic works of art displayed during the games.
Kristina added, "It's really need how all the different countries unite and do it together."
