Fourth graders at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School  donned tri-corner hats, ruffled shirts, bonnets and cotton dresses to celebrate Colonial Day last week. Students shared their research on Colonial America dressed as blacksmiths, seamstresses, limners, schoolmasters, architects, ship captains, weavers, printers and other professionals from the time period. Students also had a traditional lunch of ham and biscuits and participated in period crafts and activities such as marbles and quill writing, as the students are shown doing in the photo above.
