On February 27, 2009, Trinity Classical Academy's fourth-graders hosted their annual Middle Ages Faire.

Students prepared speeches about characters from the middle ages and fashioned vivid period costume pieces representative of that time.

When asked what he liked most about the faire, fourth-grader Caden Kulp said, "I really liked walking around and talking to people about my character." The fourth-grade class at Trinity intensively studies world history, the focal point being the middle ages and the Renaissance.

"The Middle Ages Faire allows our fourth-grade students to gain a knowledge and an understanding of the important events, people, and places of that time period in history," said Head of School Liz Caddow when explaining the educational benefits of this event for the students themselves.

Trinity is entering its ninth year this fall, offering classes from kindergarten through ninth grade and remains steadfast in providing classical Christian education in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Trinity Classical Academy hosted their annual fourth grade class Middle Ages Faire on February 27, 2009.

Each fourth-grade student dressed up as a character from the middle ages.

Their teacher, Miss Weaver, said, "I think that the faire is important, because it helps the students learn study and research skills, and how to write well and how to put facts into their own words, because they had to find information about their character, write a speech, and memorize it."

One of the girls, Nikki Ruiz, said she enjoyed the faire, because it helps people realize how different life was back then and how much harder they had to work.

The students said that they enjoyed putting together decorations and their costumes.

Friday afternoon in the gym of Trinity Classical Academy was quite a sight. It was the school's fifth consecutive Middle Ages Faire and every year it blooms with excitement and fun.

The fourth-graders were ecstatic and well-prepared to show everybody what they had been working on for several weeks.

From candle makers to knights, the room erupted with the speeches of each individual as they explained to spectators what their job was and who they were.

When Nicolette Ruiz was asked what she enjoyed most about taking on her role as a baker, she said that she liked to play with the squishy dough and put flour on her face.

Haley Kim, a vassal or noble, was wearing a beautifully sewn costume with a navy blue overcoat.

Another fun outfit was that of Sarah Howell, the court jester, who wore a black and purple striped garment with a matching hat.

You can't have a faire without food. An elaborately decorated table consisted of cheeses, bread, fruit, and olives.

The well-deserving fourth-graders took part in the medieval culture as they snacked on these treats after the faire came to an end.

The Middle Ages Faire is different every year, but something that does not change is the fun and entertainment that the students bring for everybody to enjoy.
