Aaron Colby, a Sunset Elementary School kindergartener, holds an Australian paper flag Monday during a kickoff to the school’s Olympic games in the school gym. Each class has adopted a different country for the two-week project, and many teachers are using the mock Olympiad to teach students about cultures and customs in other countries.

Aaron Colby set his face in a resolute grimace Monday as he trotted through the Sunset Elementary School gym, a torch clutched in his determined hands. The Sunset Elementary kindergartener wasn’t carrying the real icon of the Olympic games. A paper cone with red and orange construction paper flames took the place of the torch that will signal the beginning of the international sporting event this summer. Aaron didn’t waver as he carried the torch dutifully to Moffat County High School track athletes, who would run it around the gym before the finale.
