Transcript of NMS LA STAAR Olympics

Welcome to the STAAR OLYMPICS
Opening Ceremonies What are the Olympics? The Olympics are big sporting events held every four years where athletes from around the world come together to compete for their nation. Not only is it a chance to see who are the best athletes, but it is a wonderful way for the world to come together in the spirit of sportsmanship and unity. What are the STAAR Olympics ? The STAAR OLYMPICS are
a series of intense,
week-long training courses designed to prepare our
minds for the BIG EVENT, which is... STAAR Olympics
