BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Preschoolers at The Chapel School celebrated St. Patrick's Day with food and dancing.
The students participated in the celebration by wearing green, baking soda bread and dancing a jig, school officials said. Maureen Butler’s preschool class was treated to traditional folk songs played by the teacher on an Irish fiddle. After the music and dancing were finished, the students headed to the school kitchen to learn how to make Irish soda bread.
The study of international celebrations is part of The Chapel School’s multicultural studies program.
"This program enables the wonderfully diverse Chapel School family, which includes parents, guardians, students, teachers, administrators, to explore and celebrate traditions and accomplishments of people from a wide range of backgrounds," representatives said.
“Music, art, literature, science, athletics, cuisine, dance and so much more are masterfully weaved into all areas of the curriculum," said James Dhyne, principal of The Chapel School.
The Chapel School and Village Lutheran Church are at 172 White Plains Road.
