  • Dear Middle School Parents, 

    Our Middle School classroom is currently in the middle ages unit. This unit consists of a simulation, a historically accurate rank and money system, and we have also decorated our room to make a more immersive atmosphere for the students. Not to mention an in depth teaching of the middle ages. 

    We will also have a large, and accurate banquet consisting of foods, drinks, and dinner wear that was used  in the Middle Ages during their banquets. We will need plates, napkins, forks, knives, spoons, and cups. We will also need tablecloths silverware, drinks, and food.  

    Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up to bring something on SignUp Genius!  We still need help the day of the banquet, and we still need to borrow wooden bowls and wooden cutting boards/platters.  We could also use pewter too! And make sure to label them! Go to  to sign up!
