Immersion and Departure in 5th Grade

Fifth grade students shared what they have been learning about daily life in the Middle Ages in their annual medieval program. Through research, students immersed themselves in a range of historical roles, from monks to merchants, from knights to craftsmen, to transform their classrooms into interactive scenes for the education and delight of their student peers and parents. Following the classroom presentations, Principal Dan Frank dubbed each of these students, formally welcoming them to the “Kingdom of Fifthenham,” like generations of Parker 5th grade students before them.
