The founders of our beloved country all had different backgrounds and various life stories. Each had a profound impact that has affected much of what we experience in our lives even today in the United States. Our 5th graders researched and learned about the founder they were assigned, and then presented the information in a 4-5 minute speech before their peers and our esteemed guests. They enjoyed a formal tea following the presentations, including tarts, scones, quiches, and lessons on proper manners from Mr. McGee. The final portion of this memorable day was learning the minuet with a dance instructor. Founding Father’s Day at Trinitas is a student favorite not soon forgotten by them or their families.
