The fifth grade students at Selmer Middle School recently stepped back in time by reenacting the last meal served on the Titanic. The students were asked to dress in their finest clothes and served a four course meal on vintage china, in the school foyer, catered by the Selmer Middle School cafeteria. Before the grand event took place children were taught historical lessons on the Titanic and the rediscovery of the Titanic. Other academic disciplinarians were applied, such as math Titanic measuring the area of the staterooms, and biographical writing of actual passengers on the Titanic. Julie Sweat stated, “I have taught Titanic for six years, and each year the event grows larger. The part I enjoy the most is when former students, want to help, because they want to make the event fun for my present students.” This year we were able to decorate the foyer and the custodial crew at SMS built a ship deck for students to take pictures in. “The day is so exciting for the school, the former students when walking by, say ‘do not mind us, we are just third class passengers,’ but this could not take place without so many faculty members and students working as a team,” said Sweat.
