Fourth graders at Blue Ridge Elementary celebrated the end of their CKLA unit on the Middle Ages with a Renaissance Festival! Students had fun participating in activities popular during the Middle Ages, including a mock jousting contest, javelin throwing, and archery. They also created Lego castles and fire-breathing dragons. And to top it all off, they enjoyed a special feast of chicken legs, roasted vegetables, and cobbler courtesy of our amazing BRE cooks! A special THANK YOU to the cafeteria staff for their hard work in preparing the delicious meal, Jefferson County Parks and Recreation for providing the archery, and the dedicated parent volunteers and BRE staff who assisted with the event. We couldn't have done it without your help!
