The 4th grade classes of St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth Catholic School went back in time! On Friday, March 12th, the students of Stephanie Boss and Brittany Jones held their annual “Pioneer Day.” On this day, the students, teachers and volunteer parent helpers all dressed in 19th century pioneer dress. The students tried their hand at activities that their Pioneer-era peers would have done – writing with a quill pen, needlework, tin punch, stenciling, indoor games and a craft called “quilling” that uses thin strips of paper.
The students rotated in small groups to different centers for the various activities, between 9:15 and 11:35 p.m. A second session of activities continued again between 12:05 to 1:15 p.m. After lunch — the students ate similar food to what pioneer children would have eaten– there was a square dance with a real square dance caller.
