Seniors, juniors, 8th and 4th graders performed beautiful dances on Lilly’s Field in the annual May Day celebration on May 6. May Day has been a tradition at our School since 1912. Fourth graders performed to “Dancing Doll,” by Ede Poldini, and 8th graders danced to Mozart’s “Divertimento No. 11 in D. Major, k.251. 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 2017 chose Lexi Walsh as its May Queen. In keeping with the MICDS Mission, the girls requested that gifts be made in their honor to a charitable organization. They selected The Derek D. Martin Food Drive. Mr. Martin, the father of Kayla Martin ’17, was a firefighter who was killed in the line of duty in 2002. He spearheaded the first food collection many years ago and it has been carried on in his memory.
