Adele Harrison Middle School teacher Richelle Ryan held her annual Greek Festival complete with toga-clad students, Greek food, music, dancing and more. This is the fourth year that sixth-graders have participated in the fun and educational event that is the culmination of their unit on ancient Greece. Leading up to the event, each student creates a tangible “artifact” or presentation of society and life from ancient Greece.  Some examples include PowerPoints on the Greek Olympics, recreating a Spartan warrior outfit and a replica of the Parthenon.  Greek Fest is a community event in which parents and students research, cook and share traditional Greek dishes. Towards the end of the evening, a Greek tragedy is also acted out by the students.
