Colonial Craft Day
Our 5th grade students and teachers traveled back to colonial times on March 13th, for the annual, HMS Colonial Craft Day. The students loved the learning and variety of activities included in this special day. They dressed in colonial clothing, and ate their homemade lunches from lunch pails or baskets. Students learned how to make candles, churn butter, and create handmade wooden toys. They also fashioned spice hangers, and learned how to use a loom. The students were fascinated by the way of life during this time period; they embraced this experience, and all of the exciting opportunities that came with it.
Our sincere thanks to our amazing 5th grade teachers, and our generous parent volunteers who made this day possible; our gratitude to Nini Emmons for her support of this event.
