As part of our curriculum, third-grade students typically visit Jamestown Settlement to learn about both Virginia and American History. They learn about both the settlers and the Native Americans that originally populated the area. This year, however, Jamestown came to Charlottesville! On Friday, third graders held a festival for the whole Lower School at our Birdwood Campus.
Students and teachers dressed in period costumes, played historical games, and sampled authentic corn cakes from the 1600s. Mrs. Martha Bar, former Lower School Spanish teacher and former head kitchen and craft interpreter at Ash Lawn-Highland, joined in on the fun as she cooked the corn cakes over the fire.
Located in Charlottesville, VA, The Covenant School is a non-denominational, private, Christian day school for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, visual and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
