We would like to congratulate our two teams who both won second place on a competition organized for Hungarian kids.
The groups were enrolled in the Magyargyerek competition in 2016. This was a semester long competition during which the groups had to work on several assignments. By filling out questionnaires, making crafts, listening to stories, and learning songs, the children were able to learn about Hungarian customs, history, geography, folk art, etc.
Everyone did a great job and this prize was very well earned!
Thank you for the hard work the kids put into this, as well as for the help of each parent and grandparent.
Gyerekeink második helyezést értek el a Magyargyerek versenyen.
Szeretettel gratulálunk minden csapatnak!
Unfortunately not everyone was present on the day when we received the diplomas, but here’s the list of the students being on the teams and receiving an “Oklevél” 🙂
Nem sikerült mindenkinek jelen lenni az oklevelek átadásakor, de álljon itt minden gyerek neve, aki oklevelet szerzett.
We had an amazing start of the semester yesterday with over ten kids who participated in the activities of the Hungarian School.
After everyone giving us a summary of how they spent their vacation and what was the most fun activity that they remembered, we talked about the changes that we experience in the weather at Autumn, what are the typical fruits that we eat at this time of the year, etc. We played a lot, learned some songs and rhymes, then spent some time coloring and making crafts.
At the end we congratulated our students who won second place at a Hungarian competition they were enrolled to last year.
But let me stop here, because I could talk for hours about how blessed we are that so many parents, grandparents and children were interested in joining us, or what an awesome time we had. Instead I will let the pictures talk since pictures never lie 😉
Can’t wait to see everyone next time!

Also thank you Mind and Body Kids for the space and the beautiful environment.
The school year has started! Make it count!
Our activities at the Hungarian School start on September 9 at 10am.
If you have toddlers, older children or even teenagers whom you would like to learn some Hungarian, you should join us. We have activities every other Saturday. There are two teachers who welcome you and organize activities based on your child’s needs (depending on how much Hungarian do they speak, how old they are, etc.). Your children would certainly enjoy the beautiful environment and toys that our facility provides. Besides some traditional Hungarian games and language learning, children will learn about the Hungarian culture and customs. Our goal is to help families to preserve their Hungarian heritage here in the U.S.
See you there!

On August 20-th we are celebrating the foundation of the state and king Saint Stephen, the first Hungarian king who also converted Hungarians to Christians.
On this occasion we are going to watch the all famous rock opera “István, a király” and have a potluck during which you will be able to meet other Hungarians, practice the language, and experience our cuisine.

We celebrated Father’s Day in collaboration with the Hungarian Parent’s Club of Phoenix and organized a fun event for dads: we went bowling. It looks like everyone had fun and we managed to hide from the heat 🙂
