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 .
One of the fun things about Colonial Day is that you get to dress and act the part. We strongly encourage all 3rd graders, teachers and volunteers to dress in Colonial Era attire. This link here provides some information on costumes.
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 and planting a colonial garden
