1800s School Days Program
Every May— Once again thirteen third grade classes, one class at a time, step back during May for an 1800s day at the Fisher School. “Scholars” arrive in period clothes and bring an old fashioned lunch, read from McGuffey’s Reader, do arithmetic from West Dedham resident Warren Colburn’s 1847 Intellectual Arithmetic, write with quill pen and ink, participate in a spelling bee, play old fashioned games at recess and visit the old Westwood Cemetery. A dunce chair is ready lest a student misbehaves. This is the ninth year of the popular program which compliments the third grade history curriculum.
