Elise Middle’s Sixth-Graders Hold Feast
Elise Middle School’s sixth-graders recently participated in a Roman feast held in the media center.
Students had spent significant time researching the history of Pompeii, Italy. The cross-curriculum studies prepared the students to read “The Dog of Pompeii” for Beth Hinson’s language arts classes. The Roman feast saw students dressed in togas and ancient Roman soldier uniforms. Students enjoyed a special luncheon during which they had the opportunity to socialize with classmates.
A talent show followed in which the sixth-grade band performed, in addition to a variety of singers, musicians and dancers.
A drawing for four Roman coins donated by Ned Spohn, sixth-grade math teacher, was held at the end of the celebration.
Lucky winners were Courtney McNeill, Tee’Ashia Lily, Trey Wood and Lisset Villaverde.
This culminating activity demonstrated the culture’s food, entertainment and clothing.
“Parents and grandparents were invited, and their attendance added so much to this event,” says a spokesman.
