Pictured above is our Madelyn, front and center with the butterfly mask. She was performing in a play with her peers at Duke School. She was a butterfly, a woodland creature. This specific group that Madelyn was cast with was performing a play entitled Melting Madness, written by them collectively. It was written in the spirit of Aristophanes, leading comic playwright of his day, of Ancient Greece.
Duke School is a project based school. Their culminations are always quite breathtaking, as they show such hard work by the students and teachers.
Needless to say, I am very proud of Madelyn and how she has entered middle school gracefully and has consistently risen to the challenges offered with these projects.
The sixth graders made masks over the course of two weeks. Madelyn’s butterfly mask was showcased here.
