WASC Olympics

WASC OlympicsThe official website of the WASC Olympic Games! Get all the latest results from the Auburndale 2012 Olympic Games and all the information about the best athletes and scholars from all around the Williams Elementary School Community.

On March 19th, 2012 each educator will be leading an Olympic Team into the Williams Elementary Colosseum for the traditional Opening Ceremonies and the lighting of the Olympic Lamp, symbolic to the start of the games. Each day thereafter Olympians will choose the area of interest desired to compete in. They will compete against all ages of WASC students which will result in first-place, second-place, third-place and fourth-place finishes. At the end of each day, all points accumulated for each team will be recorded on the main bulletin board in the WASC Home Room as well as below. Some of our more popular competitive events are Airplane (Design) Toss, Basketball (Shoot-Out), Charades, Dictionary Wars, Math Mania, (Soccer) Penalty Shoot-Out, and the Spelling Bee, to name a few.

On March 29th, 2012 each educator will be returning an Olympic Team back to the Williams Elementary Colosseum for the Closing Ceremonies, honoring those who participated in the games and awarding individual and team medals to every child for their achievements accomplished throughout the course of the games, and at which time the Olympic Lamp is extinguished.

Spirit of the Games:

Olympic TorchCitius, Altius, Fortius – The Olympic motto, Latin for "Swifter, Higher, Stronger". In the true spirit of sportsmanship, fair play, friendship and peace, each student participating in the WASC Olympic Games takes the Olympic oath to impress upon the Olympic creed, which is that the most important thing in the WASC Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.

"In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these
Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the
true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams."

Participating Teams:

The children of WASC form into four separate teams ranging in all ages. Each team conceptualizes a Team Name, Flag and strategy for the two week event.
