Jordan students celebrate with Medieval Feast

More than 100 students at Jordan Middle School in Palo Alto celebrated their study of the Middle Ages with a Medieval Feast Wednesday and Thursday in the school's dance studio.

Dressed in costume, students danced to the English folk tune "Greensleeves," watched an acrobat and a juggler, toasted with their cups of apple-juice "ale" or buttermilk and listened to each other describe the medieval character he or she was pretending to be.

A host of parent volunteers prepared and served roast chicken, potatoes, rolls, fruits and tarts. Social studies teacher Karin Thorne has held the feasts in her seventh-grade classes for years, but said the annual celebration "has evolved."
