Chu'sok Party

Although the school I teach at is a K-12 international school with an American curriculum, approximately 90% of our students are returning overseas Koreans who were either born or lived abroad for a period of years. Most are in many ways now Americans and their level of spoken and written English is often superior to that of children back home in North America.
Although the number of truly "international" students at the school is increasing this year with our new 50-million-dollar campus and an influx of excellent quality teachers from the U.S., Canada and international schools around the world, our student body is still more "Korean expat" in many ways.
In recognition of the fact, our Sixth Grade teachers invited the class Moms to help us celebrate the Korean harvest festival of Chu'Sok, one of the two most important holidays of the year, with a party yesterday. Below are a few snaps from the festivities.
