The 6th grade class donned togas on Friday while participating in Greek Day. Students competed in track and field events similar to those of Ancient Greece. After the competition, the top three male and female finishers in each even received a miniature medal or trophy to commemorate their success. The 6th graders then performed short, student-directed plays based off of Greek myths and two of Aesop’s fables. The exceptionally dramatic performances were followed by a hand-built pottery project in the art room where students made their own double-pinch pots. The festivities came to a close with a Greek feast boasting parent-delivered baklava, fruit, veggies, hummus, pita bread and other tasty snacks.
