A Message about Colonial Day:
Hello 5th Grade Parents—
This year’s 5th Grade Colonial Day is Friday, May 3, 2019. We have been working hard to make this an enjoyable, exciting day for all Mill Pond fifth graders. Our enrichment events for the children will be the popular Life at Sea program, a Native American Flute player, the Lexington Minutemen and along with the Patriot Fife and Drum Duo. The children will partake in Tin Making, Candle Making, Quill Writing and Colonial Games – Please see attached Sign-Up Genius, as we need plenty of morning and afternoon volunteers!
Looking forward to a very fun-filled day – it’s a favorite of most 5th Graders.
Many thanks, the M.P.P.G.
