Time for the Waterford Fair

A rite of passage at Waterford Elementary is the Waterford Fair.  Not only going to the fair but being part of the fair as a 5th grader.  The fifth grade students spend the day in the Old School house having class.  They dress up and take on a roll.  The 5th graders have class (with curriculum appropriate for that time), all the while the people at the fair come in and out of the building to watch.  The kids keep in roll quite well and do a great good for the reenactment.
Carter was Ernest Johnston for the day.

Then I was a chaperone for Luke's class, a big group of 3rd graders.  They spend the school day participating in the fair crafts and demonstrations.  They love it (even though they were hot, tried and hungry)!

Love Waterford.
