Celebrating May with a Fiesta
Fifth graders at State Street School celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a lively Fiesta on Friday, May 6. Classroom work took on a different flare as students cooked, did projects and played games related to Cinco de Mayo. There was music, dancing and a lot of smiling going on.
The cafeteria was decorated with Mexican craft projects that the students created over the past few weeks, including mirrors, mosaics and Day of the Dead Skulls.
“We also had the showcase full of the Mexican Sugar skulls we made with the support of the Elementary PTC,” said fifth grader teacher Heather Buff.
Friday morning, students rotated into five different rooms to make guacamole, salsa, tissue paper crafts, Embossed Tin Suns and ‘Gods Eyes’, said Buff.
Then, the entire fifth grade ate a lunch of chicken burritos, churros and chips along with the homemade guacamole and salsa that they made in the morning.
“We couldn't have done it without the support of the PTC, cafeteria staff, Carolyn Frost and parent volunteers,” Buff said. “It was another great day in 5th grade!”
