2013 Chiang Rai International Christian School Back to School Picnic Relay Game

For teachers turning in mid-quarter grades, it feels like the mid-quarter marker has snuck up on us. But for students turning in last-minute essays, as one student put it, “It feels like we’ve already been in school a year!” However, it has been a good start to what promises to be a great year at CRICS. Despite rearranging classrooms, losing science matierials in the move, orienting new teachers, and rearranging student schedules, there has been much joy and shared organization on campus.

CRICS is a “Family Learning Community.” What that has looked like so far this year has been veterans welcoming and encouraging new teachers and new families. It has looked like patience when classrooms in the new building didn’t have white boards yet. It has looked like new students being invited to youth group and given a place to sit at lunch. It has looked like more people than expected showed up for fun at the Back to School Picnic. It has looked like high school students playing soccar with elementary students during lunch. But then again, that’s how it looks every year as a family at CRICS.

If you’re reading this and praying for us here in Thailand, you too are a part of our family community. So, here are some pictures to enjoy from the first day of school and our Back to School Picnic:

Our Back to School Picnic on September 14 was a huge success! Thanks to Ruth Fox, fun team games were organized to include all ages. We did a personal scavenger hunt to find people who met different criteria. We played a relay race, passing a ball under our legs from person to person. We also searched the campus in a race to find hidden photos of CRICS staff and students. A festive lunch of burgers, chips, fruit and even pickles was served by our always cheerful kitchen staff. Despite the heat, it was a great day!
