Camp Lejeune, NC | December 15, 2016
During this time of year, it's "Merry Christmas" in America, "Feliz Navidad" in Mexico, "Good Jul" in Sweden, and "Zalig Kerstfeast" in Netherlands, while families and friends celebrate all the wonderful ways of Christmas. This year DeLalio Elementary School featured countries from all around the world to New River for Christmas.
Staff members, students, families and Marines attended the first ever "Christmas Around the World" event presented at DeLalio Elementary School, Dec. 7. Arts and craft booths, culture centers, an Italian themed dinner, Book Fair, Gift Shop and Gunny Claus were some of the exciting adventures children and families explored at the event.
Wyonia Chevis, principal of DeLalio Elementary, has been with the school system and administration for over 30 years. For the past 5 years she has served as the Principal of DeLalio Elementary. Since diversity is common amongst society and school systems, Chevis encourages cultural diversity by selecting "Christmas Around the World" as the family meet and greet theme for this year.
