Middle Schoolers Celebrate the Renaissance with Annual Faire
Students in grade 7 celebrated the annual Renaissance Faire on Friday, May 12. The Middle School courtyard was transformed with festive decorations, punishing stocks and a tantalizing feast.
The festivities began in the morning with a parade through Campus, where students were able to show off their elaborate costumes, beat drums and wave their flags.
The parade ended at J. Crivello Hall, where students watched a special performance of Don Quixote -- a play seventh graders have been performing for 30 years! The play is performed entirely in Spanish, giving students a chance to practice their language skills.
The celebration endured through the afternoon and students were treated to a delicious, Renaissance-era feast.
