Colonists from the original 13 colonies time traveled to St. Peter School where they taught the third graders about their lives.  The shared the history of their colony, their daily life and their family’s daily life, their colony’s flag, a craft from their colony, and a sample of food from their colony.  Unfortunately, these colonists have to return to the colonial time period at the end of the school day, and they won’t be able to stick around for tomorrow.  Third grade really enjoyed their visit, though!  Click here to see more pictures!

This past week 6th grade created their own Greek city-states.  These city-states are complete with their own government, rules for citizenship, economy, and geography.  Each city-state was based on a Greek city-state, but students creatively incorporated modern stores and technology, like Apple, District Donut, and Costco.  Some of the city-states founded in the kingdom of 6th grade were Mortonville, Willtropolis, Rodopolis, and Lizland.    All of the city-states were incredibly creative and well put together!  Great job 6th grade!!
