Eighth graders took part in a 1920s celebration in Ms. Farmer’s room.  "In Social Studies class, students worked in small groups to put together a skit using slang terminology from the 1920s era and performed for their classmates," explained Ms. Farmer.  Some students even came dressed to impress! Girls were dressed as flappers and the boys wore flat caps.  Even Ms. Farmer showed up to school in her dazzling flapper costume! Afterwards, students learned how to do the 1920's most popular dance: The Charleston. The Gatsby-style party ended with cucumber sandwiches, Kool-Aid, and treats like Charleston Chews, Neccos, Dum-Dums, and Chuckles, all candy from the time period.  "The celebration was the bees – knees!" said Ms. Farmer.
