The fourth grade classrooms on the Bolles Lower School Whitehurst Campus were transformed recently into a museum-like setting highlighting Florida’s most notable historical figures and cultural icons, including St. Nicholas residents Aiden Hellein as a Calusa Indian and Kyle West as Juan Ponce de Leon.
Whitehurst Campus Grade 4 Florida Day is a much anticipated event for Bolles students, who spend the entire year preparing for the event.
Each student studied a prominent Floridian, fashioned a costume characterizing their subject, prepared a food related to their studies, gave a detailed presentation about the person they portrayed in booths that had been decorated to match the setting of their historical figure.
Others of the historical and Florida-familiar figures represented during Florida Day included Jimmy Buffet, Henry Flager, scuba divers, Southern Belles, Lily Pulitzer, hurricane experts and Walt Disney.
