Students at Eagles Nest Christian Academy celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day with its First Annual Celtic Festival March 18. To plan for the event, the fourth- through eighth-grade classes researched a particular aspect of the Celtic culture or the Saint Patrick's Day tradition and created hands-on activities and visual presentations for the lower elementary students, their families and the public.
The students have also been brushing up on their step dancing skills for a flash mob performance. Activities included Celtic history, song and dance, games, art, traditional dress, taste-testing of Irish foods, and learning about the historical figure, St. Patrick.
Sampling some Herb Cheese Palmiers are (l-r) Alex McClain and Elle Heintz who are being served by eighth-graders Zach Brittingham and Wes Hobbs.
