Lyndon Town students hold Cinco de Mayo festival


CINCO DE MAYO FESTIVAL AT LTS -- The Allied Arts Department at Lyndon Town School put on a Cinco de Mayo festival for students in grades 3-6 and their families. In Art class the students made wall hangings, tin candle covers, woven placemats and felted pictures. In Computer class students typed up the night's menu to put out on the tables. In Library class, the students made power point presentations about Mexican art, history, food and music. In Spanish and Home Arts classes, the students wrote and starred in their own cooking video showing everyone how to make a breakfast burrito in Spanish. In Physical Education class, the students learned the steps to the Mexican Hat Dance to show all their parents during the dinner. The Stage Band played two Mexican-inspired songs and the Abbey Group put out a taco and burrito bar complete with homemade guacamole and mango salsa. The students did all of the art and presentations and the parents came to watch and learn, making it a true community event. Above, fifth-graders Masin Freeto and Alexis Gervais stay after school to set the tables and put up the decorations for the dinner.
