It was a busy week in Lower School! Visitors were pampered and celebrated this week in a series of special events.
Fifth grade hosted their annual Farmer’s Market. The students have been hard at work this year preparing for this event. Everything sold was grown by the class from seed to plant. Shoppers purchased vegetables, herbs and flowers and sampled refreshments prepared with the ingredients that the students had grown. The students planned and ran the entire event from start to finish, including running the booths, collecting and counting the money, and documenting and photographing the day. Overall the students raised $2,754, which will be donated to the Episcopal Greenhouse.
First Grade Animal Project
First Grade began the week with their annual Muffins for Mom event. Guests enjoyed breakfast and a presentation from the students. The following day, first grade presented their Animal Expeditions. Each student researched an animal, designed a habitat and wrote an informational book about their chosen animal. Friends and family toured the exhibits as the students shared their projects.
Superheros Ice Cream Sundae Party!
In celebration of 100% participation in the eFund, Mrs. Arceneaux's third grade class was treated to a Superheroes and Sundaes party. Students dressed up in their most creative costumes and enjoyed ice cream sundaes. Mrs. Willis’ kindergarten class reached the goal later in the spring, so they celebrated with a popsicle party on the playground.
Spring Spa Day
Kindergarten hosted a Spring Spa Day for their friends and family. Guests were treated to manicures and hand massages in the Nail Salon, snacks in the restaurant, and stories in the Reading Lounge. Visitors left relaxed and refreshed as they head into the summer!
Mother's Day Tea
Second grade invited their moms to a Mother’s Day Tea. Dressed in their finest and donning coordinating hats, the students served tea and cookies and performed a musical number for their invitees. They read passages from a book that they had written and presented their mothers with a special piece of artwork.
