With most students wearing togas and sandals, teachers and parent volunteers served fresh grapes, olives and a variety of other would-be exotic appetizers at the school’s annual Roman Feast, a popular activity that teachers say help re-enforce weeks of history lessons.
“It culminates a very important part of our curriculum,” sixth grade teacher Angie Brenson said. “I’d say we spend a month or so working on Roman and Greek history.”
