As a culmination of their social studies unit on the medieval time period, James Wilson Young Middle School sixth-graders participated in an interactive educational project.

Dressed in traditional medieval clothing, the students spent the day engaging in cultural projects and celebrating their newly acquired knowledge on the era. During an educational fair, they participated in a traditional coronation ceremony, which included the crowning of the James Wilson Young King and Queen. Music teacher Carl Leichthammer and sixth-grade teacher Kelly Petrosino were named to the royal positions, respectively. Following the coronation, the students and their teachers paraded from the middle school to Sylvan Avenue Elementary School, displaying their colorful class flags along the route.

Prior to the fair, the students spent several weeks researching and compiling information on topics from the Middle Ages and completing research projects depicting their findings. On the day of the event, their projects were put on display for their peers and family members in attendance to review.
