A few of the students, teachers and parents at the school
THE SWEDISH School for Language and Culture in Vienna, Virginia, began its second school year on Saturday, September 11. After class, new and returning students, parents, and teachers celebrated their school’s first anniversary with traditional Swedish cake decorated with strawberries and cream.
THE STUDENTS seemed to thoroughly enjoy their recess in the beautiful fall weather and a couple of parents led them in a quick game of field hockey. All meetings at the school end with a 30-minute gathering of students and their families.

THIS FIRST MEETING of the year was spent sharing memories of the summer. The students, ages 5 to 17, were able to use their Swedish skills within the group. There were stories about flea market bargains in Sk?e (a region in southern Sweden), meetings with dolphins in Florida and bearded horses in Iceland, and other exciting stories.
