A Beautiful May Day

On May 5, Seniors, Juniors, 8th and 4th graders performed beautiful dances on Lilly’s Field in the annual May Day celebration. Fourth graders performed to “Divertimento No. 11 in D Major, k.251” by W.A. Mozart, and 8th graders danced to Takako Nishizaki’s “Lift Your Veil.” The Junior girls presented the Daisy Chain accompanied by “Carillon from L’Arlesienne Suite No. 1” by Georges Bizet. Seniors wove the May Pole to the music of Fantasia on “Greensleeves.”

This year, the Class of 2018 chose Kayla Work as its May Queen. In keeping with the MICDS Mission, the girls requested that gifts be made in their honor to a charitable organization, and this year, they chose St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. And of course, even Ellie got into the May Day spirit!
