On Friday, November 17, 2017, Adair County Elementary School held its annual International Day. International students that attend Lindsey Wilson College visited the school and graciously educated ACES students on the many countries they represent.


ACES 3rd grade students enjoyed learning about Japan and were excited to receive a set of chopsticks with instruction on how to use them properly. They practiced their new skill by using them to eat pretzels, gummy bears and dry cereal. 3rd graders also learned about the culture in France including popular foods, favorite sports and one of France's biggest monuments. LWC students from Africa taught about baobab trees, favorite sporting events and the Lac Rose Lake, which is pink in color because of algae and high salt content.

ACES 4th graders learned about the differences in American and Canadian culture including a discussion about the difference in an American President and a Canadian Prime Minister. Requirements for Canadian citizenship were discussed and how schools are similar and different to schools in America. L WC students from the Dominican Republic talked to 4th grade students about foods, sports and their primary language.

LWC Assistant of International Student Programs discussed with 5th grade students some of the wonderful sites to visit in the United States. South Korean students shared information on holidays celebrated in South Korea and the favorite games of children in their country. The LWC students then played those games with ACES students, which was a big hit! A LWC Haitian student talked with 5th graders about schools in Haiti, foods, religion, languages and taught students how to say "I love you" in both the Creole and French languages.

ACES would like to thank Sabine Eastham, LWC Director of International Student Programs, Kassie Little, LWC Assistant Director of International Student Programs and the following LWC international students for an amazing day:

- Japan - Wu Bingqiny, Ayumi Maruyama, Yui Susuki, Maine Nishimura, Chisato Sawayama and Saya Yokoi

- France - Stephan Dasse and Franke Bikoya

- Africa - Safia Bright, Noustapha Fofana, Soubaone Mosheleleti
