Middlesex Middle School went back in time as eighth-graders participated in the school's first Colonial Day.

Colonial Day included re-enactments by the 5th Connecticut Regiment and demonstrations on clothing, smelting and medicine. Students were encouraged to dress in period clothing as they participated in the day's activities.
