Litchfield Montessori School’s Lower Elementary Students Engage in Pancake Day and Mardi Gras Celebrations!
Lower Elementary Directresses, Debby DeGuire and Elaine Allessio guided the children in artistic extensions of the study. The students strung beaded necklaces and created face masks. Jason Silverman and Marina Keator were selected as the King and Queen of Mardi Gras. They led their classmates on a fun pancake race based on the classes’ study of a 1445 incident in Olney, England when a housewife late for services arrived at the church door wearing her apron and still clutching her frying pan! After the race all competitors enjoyed a pancake, strawberries and whipped cream treat!
