Spring is around the corner and so is Colonial Day! The annual third grade event is parent-run. Students and teachers spend a day learning about life in America in the early 1600s. Third graders participate in many crafts!
This is a fun filled day for your children, teachers and parents. In order to make this event a success, we will need a lot of parent volunteers to prepare things, volunteer their time to run an event and prepare your children for the day. Please sign up here to help .
Costumes for Colonial Day are optional for students. This is an experienced based learning day and while CD dress is optional, it is part of the fun. Here is a link with ideas for "colonial day" attire here and here . These are just suggestions and costumes can be made by things already in your home. Please read Dr. Bodie's letter below regarding Colonial Day.
A variety of events will be happening throughout the day. Some of the fun and interesting events include: candlestick making, tin-punching, colonial games, colonial dance, one-room school house, colonial garden and a very special guest from the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.
