It's a Fiesta!

Paaralang Pinoy's Fiesta Workshop was as fun as we imagined it would be!  It felt like a typical day in May somewhere in the Philippines--hot and very humid.

But under the trees and shade of Shelter A in Nottoway Park, the families who joined us had a blast playing tumbang preso and agawan base; the prowess of the titas in sungka were challenged by the kids; and with a bit of Filipiniana music, the dance genes of Pinoys were in full display!

The parents were thrilled to see their children play the games of their youth.  The aunts and uncles, and a few Lola and Lolo were happy to share their kuwento.  This can only mean a fortuitous beginning for this next phase of Paaralang Pinoy: the PP co-op program where parents and teacher-volunteers work together to share their talents to these new generation of Fil-Am kids and their friends.

Sige, sali na kayo!
