IMG_2636As part of their study of medieval culture and history, the fourth and eighth grade classes celebrated Medieval Day, Thursday, March 5th.  The ladies and gentlemen dressed as literary or historical characters of the period and enjoyed life as peasants and the gentry.  The rainy weather couldn’t dampen students’ spirits or the activities of the medieval village in the morning.  Students  participated in trades such as bread making, scaling fish, chopping wood, and plucking chickens.  The resident jailer caught many erring in the code of chivalry who were promptly imprisoned until a generous benefactor paid for their release.  Students feasted on vittles characteristic of the time at lunch and ended the day with games and a hunt for the white stag.  It was truly a highlight of the year for students and parents alike.
