As this school year 2021-22 successfully came to an end with 60
students, we take a look back at the frame and goals we set at the
beginning of the year, and the events during the year.
After the success of our online school of the previous year 2020-21, we
had decided to go online again this year, which during the mask period
ensured the best perception of the speaking, both pronunciation
and image, for the whole class. Also, this way no class would be
likely to close, nor classes
would be missed due to illness.
Also, this time, a continuous school year was adopted instead of two
separate semesters, and for this reason we had one registration at the
beginning of the year for the whole school year, as it happens in
The above measures contributed to the systematic monitoring and progress
of students, and that was our goal after all.
Our students who took the exams in October for the A2 level succeeded
with very high grades , while the adult students who started the A1
Greek Studies level this year, completed the year with consistency and
The art packages were distributed twice, in October and in January to
the PreK students up to the 3rd grade and were used for the art and
Greek culture lesson that took place after the language lesson. It was
an excellent activity that gave the children the opportunity to create
and learn about Greece.
At the same time, the older children attended after class the Technology
Club, where they used electronic applications
and practiced their Greek.
We had two wonderful online celebrations with our students, one for
Christmas and one for March 25th. In the second, some of our adult
students participated, and this gave great joy and pride to the entire
school community. We were also very pleased with the commitment of all
students in rehearsals and presentation, and it was especially moving
for March 25, which coincides with the Spring break.
In April we organized a meeting of adult students in Holy Trinity, with
coffee and a tour to the museum. It was so touching to spend time all
together for the first time, and have with us our students who attend
classes from Arizona and Seattle.
Our school participated once more this year in the Archeology seminars
organized by the Archeology After School Organization .
On the 23rd of May, our examination center conducted the Ellinomatheia
exams for the Certification of the Greek Language in Oregon.
We thank our teachers who gave the best of themselves to their students:
Sofia Iosifidi in Ellinomatheia classes and K-12, Maria Anagnostidou in
K-12, Irini Karanika in Art class, Christos Monocheir in Tech club.
We thank our volunteers who supported us in various ways: Christos
Karanikas, Thomas Spathas, Katerina Chachas, Chris Ghyzel, Ted Nieuwsma,
Of course, the center of all our efforts is our students. We thank with
our hearts the students and their families for their love and devotion
to the Greek school.
The certainty we had from the beginning was verified: we shared a
wonderful school year again, full of knowledge, creation and joy.
Happy summer to everyone!
