Art City Elementary School, Sixth-grade, had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the Renaissance Faire at Thanksgiving Point to learn about the Medieval Times. Some of the things they saw were how the people used to print their literature. It was really fascinating how the printing machine worked. Kelby Jepperson, 6th-grade said “We saw some really awesome birds!” Some of the things they learned how to do were fight with foam swords and play Bocce Ball.
