Color-of-Flag-Day at the Chicago Persian School
COLOR OF FLAG DAY
Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018 @ CPS
Let's all wear to school any combination of Green-White-Red in honor of Iran's flag!
This is the closest Sunday to "Mehregan" celebration, the "National Day of Love" in the Iranian calendar.
Color-of-Flag day at CPS is a symbolic gesture of respect to the flag and Iranian heritage.
Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to include colors of Iranian flag in their outfit. This is an optional activity and no one should feel obligated.
Teachers will explain the meaning of each color in our flag during the class time on Sunday and do related class activities.
We prefer that actual flags are not brought to school.
