Guests enjoyed servings of tea and cookies, a reference to the Boston Tea Party, while observing what their children had learned about the birth of the U.S. This was the school’s fifth annual Colonial Festival.
“It’s always exciting to attend school events like our annual Colonial Festival because they give parents a first-hand look at what their students have learned,” Superintendent Froilan Mendoza said. “Seeing this level of passion from our elementary school students is a great indicator that we’re instilling a strong desire in them to learn more and to find enjoyment in their education.”
