The Crispell winter games have begun!

Let the games begin!

Crispell’s annual multi-week Olympic event kicked off Friday, Jan. 13, with the opening ceremonies and the parade of nations.

Three middle school students parade in with a sign that says Puerto rico. One student is wearing the Puerto Rican flag as a cape.

The parade of nations was a highlight for the spectators, as those representing the many nations carried the country’s flag and even dressed the part, in some cases.


Three middle school students carry the flag of Sweden, while another student holds a sign saying Sweden over her head. She is in a wheel chair being pushed by a student.


Interesting fact: Greece led the nations at the Crispell games just as it does at all Olympics. Greece’s position of honor in the parade of nations is a tribute to its history as the birthplace of the ancient Olympics, as well as the host of the first modern Olympics in 1896.

Three middle school students carry the blue and white flag of Greece into the gym. another student holds up a paper torch.


Over the next several weeks, students will compete in both academic and athletic events. They will research different countries, learning pertinent facts about them and compete in trivia contests. There is even a door decorating contest!


Four middle school students carry the flag of Norway with one walking in front with a  viking hat on.

Athletically, events such as cornhole, tug of war, and Wii games will keep our athletes in the Olympic mood.


This wonderful event brings the whole building together, according to Principal John Boyle, who emceed the parade of nations.
