Students at El Morro Elementary School step back in time
during November for our annual Colonial Days celebration!
El Morro Colonial Days is a two-day event hosted in the MPR Room. The MPR room is transformed backward in time to the colonial days, complete with 10 crafting stations, a Native American camp, colonial kitchen, and more! We will have an all-school assembly that will present a short skit describing the Colonial Days experience. In addition to this, there will be storytelling experiences, P.E. and lunchtime activities, classroom crafts, and a bead trading center open for business. Colonial Days is a highlight of every El Morro student’s elementary years!
