Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School third-graders (from left) Emily Callaway, Keira Glynn and Taylor Webb make layered cookie jars during Pioneer Day. Activities such as playing hopscotch, creating corn husk dolls and using a washboard brought to life the time period of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie,” which the students are reading.
